The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is proposing to make improvements to the SH 35 at SH 361/Spur 202 interchange in Gregory, San Patricio County, Texas.
Area growth and planned adjacent improvement projects prompted TxDOT to conduct a feasibility study in 2021, to evaluate how to better connect SH 361, SH 35, and US 181. The project area encompasses the intersection of SH 35 at SH 361/Spur 202 and the roadway connections to Gregory, Portland, Ingleside, and Aransas Pass.
TxDOT is proposing to upgrade the existing interchange to an elevated single-point urban interchange (SPUI) at the intersection of SH 35 at SH 361/Spur 202. This upgrade will include modification to ramps and frontage roads within the described limits. Most of the proposed improvements can be built within the existing right-of-way allowing TxDOT to minimize the amount of right-of-way needed. In consideration of these proposed improvements, TxDOT is reviewing traffic data, local and regional access needs, safety, potential environmental impacts, and is seeking public input. This open house will be one of many opportunities the public will be asked to provide input.
|Accessibility||The virtual open house and in-person option will be conducted in English with Spanish materials available online and in-person. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the virtual open house or in-person option, leave a message at (361) 808-2544 no later than 4 p.m. CT three business days before the in-person option is held. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.|
|How to make a comment||
Written comments from the public regarding the proposed project are requested.
Comments can also be submitted via comment forms provided at the in-person option.
