The purpose of the public meeting is to gather public input on the proposed improvements to US 83 from 0.255 miles north of the Starr/Zapata county line to Loma Blanca Road. The purpose of this meeting is to allow the public the opportunity to view project related information, view a presentation, ask questions and provide comments on the proposed improvements to the US 83 highway.


The proposed improvements include constructing a four-lane divided rural highway with a grass median within a proposed right-of-way (ROW) width that varies between 300-450 feet.

The proposed project would require approximately 157 acres of additional roadway ROW. It is anticipated that the proposed project would require one business and three residential relocations. Relocation assistance is available for those displaced through TxDOT’s Relocation Assistance Program. The relocation process would be conducted according to the Title II and Title III of the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970. Information about the benefits, services and Right of Way Acquisition schedule can be obtained at the TxDOT District Office, located at 600 W. I-2, Pharr Texas
