The purpose of the Open House is to gather public input on the proposed improvements to the US 83 median crossovers between Familia Street and Pete Solis Road in Starr County. The meeting will be an open house format so the public may come and go at their convenience, and staff will be available to answer questions. Comments must be received on or before Sept. 5, 2018 to be a part of the official open house record.


Proposed improvements include the following:

  • Adding a median crossover with adequate deceleration lanes
  • Removing two existing median crossovers with shorter deceleration lanes 

Special Accommodation:

TxDOT makes every reasonable effort to accommodate the needs of the public. The open house will be in English. If you have a special communication accommodation or need for an interpreter, a request can be made. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can also be made to accommodate most needs. Please call (956) 702-6161 at least 5 working days prior to the meeting. Please be aware that advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
