Notice and opportunity to comment

Public comment deadline All comments must be received on or before Nov. 22, 2022.
Purpose The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is proposing to reconstruct and widen Interstate (I)-20 from east of John Ben Shepperd Parkway, in Ector County, to east of State Highway (SH) 349, in Midland County. This notice is affording an opportunity to comment as part of the environmental review process for this project.

Improvements would include adding main lanes, constructing new interchanges, reconfiguring existing interchanges and ramps, intersection improvements, and converting frontage roads from two-way operation to one-way operation. The proposed project would require approximately 16.8 acres of new right of way (ROW). The total length of the proposed project is approximately 16.4 miles.

Although additional ROW would be required, no residential or non-residential structures are anticipated to be displaced at this time. Information concerning services and benefits available to affected property owners and information about the tentative schedule for ROW acquisition and construction can be obtained from the TxDOT Odessa District office by calling 432-498-4645.

Accessibility The project materials are written in English. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to review the project materials or submit information, please call Diann Hodges, TxDOT public information officer, 512-832-7027 no later than 4 p.m. central time, at least three business days before the date on which you would like to review the project materials or submit information.
