The virtual public meeting will begin Wednesday, May 26, 2021 by noon and will be available through Friday, June 11, 2021.


The purpose of the virtual public meeting is to receive public comment on TxDOT’s Pecos Relief Route study with study limits from US 285 north of Pecos to US 285 south of Pecos in Reeves County, Texas.

The virtual meeting will consist of a virtual room and will include visual components and an opportunity to comment. Comments must be received or postmarked on or before Friday, June 11, 2021, to be a part of the official meeting record.

If you need additional information, please call (512) 342-3281 to ask questions about the project and access project materials at any time during the project development process. 


Following the 2019 Pecos Truck Route study prepared by Reeves County, TxDOT will advance and further refine a relief route for US 285 around the east side of Pecos. This proposed relief route would help long-term mobility, connectivity and safety needs on US 285 for local and through traffic. The project is still in the early phases of a multi-phased process, and refinements to the route will occur. No decisions have been made about the route’s final location. TxDOT requests input on mobility and safety needs, as well as considerations within the study area.
