Purpose Kaufman County and TxDOT are proposing to construct a new alignment in Kaufman County, connecting at SH 205 to south of I-20, with an interchange at US 80 and I-20 in Kaufman County, Texas.

The proposed project is needed because the existing facilities in and around western Kaufman County do not currently provide adequate mobility and regional connectivity, nor are they able to accommodate current and future travel demands and projected population growth, leading to operational deficiencies and congestion issues. The proposed project would provide improved access across the eastern part of the Dallas - Fort Worth metroplex (DFW) and have a positive impact on congested urban areas in the DFW region and Kaufman County.

The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional right of way and potentially displace residences and/or non-residential structures. The proposed project may involve construction in wetlands. The proposed project may involve an action in a floodplain.


The open house will be conducted in English. 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 open house, please contact Brian Swindell at 972-960-4451 no later than 4 p.m. CT, Thursday, Nov. 10, 2022. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for Kaufman County to arrange.
