|Virtual details||The virtual public meeting presentation and meeting materials will be available on this web page at the date and time listed. The virtual meeting room will be available for viewing through Friday, April 7, 2023.|
|Purpose||TxDOT is conducting a virtual public meeting to share information and gather input from the public on proposed improvements to SH 115 from SH 128 to SH 349 in Andrews, Dawson, Gaines and Martin counties, Texas. The virtual public meeting will present the preferred alternative, share background information, provide details on the project development process and timeline, and include multiple opportunities for the public to provide input through formal comment.|
The proposed SH 115 North project would include widening the existing two-lane undivided highway to a four-lane divided highway with two lanes in each direction, a non-paved depressed median, inside and outside shoulders, and median openings as needed. The project would also include realignment of a five-mile segment of SH 115 on the north end of the project, near Patricia, Texas. The overall project is approximately 55 miles in length. At this time, no improvements are proposed within the city of Andrews.
The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional right of way and potentially displace no residential structures and approximately 10 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, can be obtained by calling 432-201-2454.
The proposed project could involve construction in wetlands; however, that has not been determined.
