Open House and Public Hearing - I-20
|Where:||Midland County Horseshoe
Multipurpose Arena, Building C
2514 Arena Trail
Midland, TX 79701
|When:||Tuesday, March 18, 2013
Open House: 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
Presentation: 6 p.m.
|Purpose:||The purpose of the open house and public hearing is to present information and gather input regarding a proposed 1.8-mile-long project to reconstruct and widen the I-20 frontage roads from two lanes to three lanes near FM 715 and SH 158; extend and widen on/off ramps; reverse the eastbound on-ramp near Lamesa Road to an off-ramp; and reverse the eastbound off-ramp near FM 715 to an on-ramp.|
|Description:||The proposed project is needed to improve the turning movements at the FM 715 and SH 158 intersections. Current ramp geometry, combined with higher traffic volumes and low level of service at the FM 715 and SH 158 intersections, causes traffic to queue onto the I-20 mainlanes. The proposed project would reduce ramp congestion and the potential hazard of traffic queuing onto the I-20 mainlanes by improving intersection operations and ramp configurations.
The public is encouraged to attend the meeting and provide comments at any time on or before Tuesday, April 1, 2014.
