Tuesday, July 17, 2018
Open House 5 p.m. - 6 p.m.
Presentation 6:00 p.m.


The purpose of the public meeting is to gather public input on the proposed improvements to SH 48 (Boca Chica Blvd.) from I-69E to SH 4 (International Blvd.) in Brownsville, Cameron County, Texas. Project information will be in hand for viewing and staff will be available to answer questions. Comments must be received on or before August 1, 2018 to be a part of the official public meeting record.


The proposed project would involve the construction of a raised median with landscaping on an existing roadway that is currently within a 100-foot wide right-of-way (ROW). 

The proposed project would not require additional ROW. The raised median would be installed in place of the existing continuous left turn lane. The width of the raised median will be 11-foot wide with the median narrowing down to 2 feet at the intersections. The existing six 11-foot wide travel lanes will remain in place.
