|Purpose||TxDOT is proposing improvements to US 80 (from FM 460 to Spur 557) and Spur 557 (from US 80 to I-20), a total length of approximately 12.1 miles in Kaufman County, Texas.|
Proposed improvements consist of reconstructing US 80 from FM 460 to Spur 557 from a four-lane divided to a six-lane divided highway with auxiliary lanes and a concrete barrier along the centerline. Proposed improvements along Spur 557 also consist of reconstructing Spur 557 from a four-lane divided to a six-lane divided highway with auxiliary lanes and a concrete barrier along the median. Both US 80 and Spur 557’s proposed improvements would include adding continuous two to three-lane, one-way frontage roads in each direction along the proposed project to fill existing frontage road gaps and to remove existing two-way frontage roads. Ramping improvements, bridge reconstruction, shared use paths and sidewalks are proposed for both US 80 and Spur 557.
The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require approximately 56 acres of additional right-of-way and potentially displace two residences, one business, and two non-residential structures (billboards).
|Accessibility||The in-person public meeting option 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 virtual public meeting or in-person option, please contact the TxDOT Public Information Office at 214-320-4480 no later than 4 p.m. on Thursday, July 21, 2022. Advance notice is required as services and accommodations require time to arrange.|
|Memorandum of Understanding||The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried-out by TxDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 9, 2019, and executed by the Federal Highway Administration and TxDOT.|
