Virtual Public Meeting - US 82 Lamar County


The pre-recorded video presentation will be posted below and all materials will be available separately under the Downloads section.


The pre-recorded presentation will be posted on this page on Thursday, April 29, 2021, beginning at 6 p.m. and will be available for comment until Friday, May 14, 2021.


The purpose of the virtual public meeting is to present the proposed project to the public and receive comments. TxDOT Paris District is proposing to improve US 82 from the Fannin County Line to Loop 286 West of Paris, Texas, in Lamar County, Texas. Comments must be received on or before Friday, May 14, 2021, to be a part of the official meeting record.


The proposed improvements include the widening of US 82 from a two-lane highway to a four-lane divided highway for a distance of approximately 16 miles. The proposed roadway from the Fannin County line to County Road 23900 west of Toco includes two 12-foot-wide travel lanes in each direction, a 10-foot-wide outside shoulder, and a 68-foot-wide depressed median. From CR 23900 to Loop 286, the roadway includes two 12-foot-wide travel lanes in each direction, a 10-foot-wide outside shoulder and a 16-foot-wide continuous left turn lane. Within the City of Paris limits, a five-foot-wide sidewalk would be provided on the south side of US 82.

The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional right of way and potential displacements of residential and commercial structures. Information about the TxDOT Relocation Assistance Program and services and benefits for displaced and other affected property owners, as well as information about the tentative schedule for right-of-way acquisition and construction, can be obtained from the TxDOT district office by calling (903) 737-9300.
