The virtual public meeting will be held beginning on Tuesday, April 21, 2020 and will be available through Wednesday, May 6, 2020. All comments must be received on or before Wednesday, May 6, 2020.  


The purpose of the virtual public meeting is to present the proposed US 287 frontage road improvements and solicit public comments. The virtual public meeting materials will consist of a video presentation explaining the proposed project, which includes both audio and video components, along with other exhibits and materials for review. Formal comments may be provided by mail, email, or voicemail as described in the notice and on the virtual public meeting website. 


This feasibility study identifies and evaluates potential construction of continuous, one-way frontage roads, including grade separations and access control, along US 287 from State Highway (SH) 360 in the City of Mansfield to West Lampasas Street in the City of Ennis. The total project length is approximately 32 miles. Project alternatives could require additional right-of-way to accommodate the improvements.
