The purpose of this public scoping meeting is to provide the public an opportunity to review and comment on the draft coordination plan and schedule, the project purpose and need, the alternatives, and methodologies and level of detail for analyzing alternatives.
It will also allow the public an opportunity to provide input on any expected environmental impacts, anticipated permits or other authorizations, and any significant issues that will be analyzed in depth in the EIS.
||Based on the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process, TxDOT has determined that the Downtown 10 Project will now be classified and prepared as an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) that will evaluate a range of build alternatives and a no-build alternative.|
The public scoping meeting will be conducted in English and Spanish.
If you need an interpreter or document translator because English or Spanish are not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively, 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 public scoping meeting, please contact Lauren Macias-Cervantes, Public Information Officer, El Paso District, at (915) 790-4341 no later than 4 p.m. (MT), Monday, Nov. 21, 2022.
