Open House - FM 2609 Nacogdoches

Where: C.L. Simon Recreation Center
1112 North St.
Nacogdoches, TX 75961
When: Tuesday, Aug. 12, 2014
4 p.m. - 7 p.m.
Purpose: The purpose of the meeting is to present the proposed alignment alternatives for widening FM 2609/East Austin Street, explain where it is in the project development process, answer questions and gather local citizen input.
Description: East Austin Street has four travel lanes from Loop 224/Stallings Drive to Raguet Street and narrows to two lanes between Raguet Street and North Street, creating a bottleneck for traffic. TxDOT and the City of Nacogdoches are proposing to widen this section of East Austin Street from two lanes to four lanes to alleviate congestion and increase safety and mobility.

Existing roadway:

  • Two 12-foot travel lanes with curb and gutter
  • No bicycle accommodations
  • Narrow sidewalks
  • Four-way stop at Raguet Street
  • Existing right-of-way width is typically 60 feet

Proposed roadway:

  • Four 11-foot travel lanes with curb and gutter
  • Additional three feet of pavement to accommodate bicycles
  • Six-foot sidewalks and ADA-compliant curb ramps to accommodate pedestrians
  • Traffic signal at Raguet Street
  • 20 feet of additional right-of-way width

This is an open house format, so no formal presentation is planned. Attendees may come and go at their convenience.
