Purpose
TxDOT is conducting a virtual public hearing with in-person option to propose replacing the existing bridge at SH 7 (Main St) and Lanana Creek from 443 feet west of the Lanana Creek Bridge to 327 feet east of the Lanana Creek Bridge in Nacogdoches County, Texas.
Description

The proposed bridge replacement on SH 7 (Main St) at Lanana Creek in Nacogdoches, Texas Nacogdoches County will consist of replacing the existing structure with a 4-lane bridge, with two 12-foot lanes in either direction, 4-foot shoulders, and 6-foot sidewalks on either side of the road. The proposed project will extend for approximately 0.146 mile. Existing Right-of-Way (ROW) varies from 60 – 70 ft and the proposed ROW will vary from 120 – 165 ft.

The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional right of way and potentially displace 0 residences and 4 non-residential structures. 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 903-799-1311.

The proposed project is anticipated to impact the following properties Parcels 22851 and 24285 protected under Section 4(f) of the Department of Transportation Act of 1966: Parcel 22851 is owned by the City of Nacogdoches and contains portions of the Lanana Creek Trail. Liberty Hall is also present on parcel 22851, however, Liberty Hall does not qualify as a 4(f) property. Parcel 24285 is owned by the City of Nacogdoches and contains the Master Gardeners Demonstration Garden.

The proposed project would require 0.27 acres of permanent ROW and temporary closure of the Lanana Creek Trail at the intersection of SH 7 and Lanana Creek. ROW is required to accommodate the construction and location of the proposed bridge. Approximately 0.35 acre of permanent ROW would also be required from the Master Gardeners Demonstration Garden at the location of SH 7 and University Drive. TxDOT anticipates making a de minimis determination for this use under Section 4(f) of the Department of Transportation Act of 1966. Public comment on the effects of the proposed project on the activities, features, or attributes of the Lanana Creek Trail and Master Gardeners Demonstration Garden may be submitted as described below.

The proposed project would involve an action in a floodplain.
