TxDOT is proposing to improve SH 4 Boca Chica Boulevard from SH 48 to FM 313 in Cameron County, Texas.
The virtual meeting will consist of a pre-recorded video presentation and will include both audio and visual components. The presentation will be posted online by 8 a.m. CST on Thursday, Sept. 23, 2021. If you do not have internet access, you may call Samantha Lozano, P.E. at (956) 702-6334 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, to ask questions and access project materials during the project development process.
Additionally, TxDOT is providing an in-person option for individuals who would like to participate in person instead of online. In-person attendees will be able to view the same presentation delivered in the online public meeting which will be playing on screen, review hard copies of project materials, ask questions of TxDOT staff and/or consultants from a socially distanced approach, and leave written comments.
The proposed improvements of SH 4 from SH 48 to FM 313 in Brownsville, Cameron County, Texas are designed to improve safety and mobility by utilizing a concrete raised median to separate traffic and consolidate left-turn movements. The project also proposes to include continuous sidewalks in the project area. The project is about 2.2 miles long.
Written comments from the public regarding the proposed project are requested and may be submitted by mail to TxDOT Pharr District, Samantha Lozano, P.E., Project Manager, 600 West Interstate 2, Pharr, TX 78577. Written comments may also be submitted by email. All comments must be received on or before Friday, Oct. 8, 2021. Responses to comments received will be available online at txdot.gov once they have been prepared.
