TxDOT is conducting a feasibility study to analyze the need for and potential location of a second bridge crossing over the Paluxy River along SH 144 in Glen Rose, Somervell County, Texas. The purpose of this second meeting is to present the study and displays showing the recommended alternative. The public meeting will be an open house format to allow the public to view displays and ask questions. Written comments must be submitted on or before Friday, Dec. 6, 2019, to be part of the official record.


Currently, there is only one crossing of the Paluxy River along SH 144. If the current bridge became unusable, for whatever reason, users would have to drive over 15 miles for an alternative route.

The feasibility study will evaluate the need and viability of a second crossing of the river.
