TxDOT is proposing to improve US Highway 62/385 in the city of Seminole in Gaines County, Texas. This notice advises the public that TxDOT will be conducting a virtual public meeting regarding the proposed project.
Project staff will give a pre-recorded presentation regarding the project and an opportunity for questions will be provided following the presentation. The presentation will remain available for viewing at the web address indicated above until Friday, Feb. 26, 2021. The pre-recorded presentation will include both audio and video components. If you do not have internet access, you may call Kylan Francis, P.E., Director of Transportation Planning and Development (TP&D), at (806) 748-4490 to ask questions and access project materials during the project development process. Written comments may be submitted by mail or email by Friday, Feb. 26, 2021 as explained below.
The proposed project will improve mobility and safety through Seminole. Three proposed options will be presented as follows:
- Option 1: this proposed option would convert the existing US 62/385 roadway (Main Street) through Seminole from two-way traffic to one-way, northbound traffic. Second Street through Seminole would be converted to one-way southbound traffic.
- Option 2: this proposed option would widen the existing 5th Street roadway to three lanes (one lane in each direction with a center left-turn lane).
- Option 3: this proposed option (also known as the No Build Option) would not change traffic direction but would rehab the existing US 62/385 roadway, as well as add or repair sidewalks and ADA ramps.
To view additional materials or take the survey, visit the Seminole Relief Route project web page.
The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional right of way and potentially displace: one residence and four non-residential structures for Option 1; no residences and one non-residential structure for Option 2; and no displacements for Option 3. Relocation assistance is available for displaced persons and businesses. Information about the TxDOT Relocation Assistance Program and services and benefits for those displaced and other affected property owners, as well as information about the tentative schedule for right-of-way acquisition and construction, can be obtained from the TxDOT district office by calling Timothy Richardson at (806) 748-4342.
If you have any general questions or concerns regarding the proposed project or the virtual meeting, please contact the director of TP&D at (806) 748-4490.
