Hidalgo County Pct. #1, in cooperation with TxDOT, is widening and reconstructing Mile 6 West Road from Mile 11 to SH 107 in Hidalgo County, Texas; a distance of 5.18 miles. Project staff will give a presentation which will be a pre-recorded video and will include both audio and visual components. All comments may be submitted by mail or email and must be received on or before Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2020.
Changes include: widening the roadway to include a center turn lane, sidewalks, and a storm drain system; improving intersections, and cleaning and widening existing drainage ditches. The new proposed typical section would include a four lane urban road with a center turning lane, shoulders and sidewalks within a 104-foot-wide right-of-way (ROW). The intersections would be improved to provide left turn lanes and the storm water runoff would be handled by cleaning, widening, or newly constructing drainage ditches. Approximately 4.85 acres would be acquired for the intersections and 53.21 acres for the drainage ditches.
The project would, subject to design considerations, require additional right of way and potentially displace one residence, as mentioned in previous public meetings; there is no change. No non-residential structures are anticipated to be displaced at this time.
The virtual public meeting will be conducted in English and Spanish. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the virtual public meeting, please contact (956) 968-8733 no later than 4 p.m. CT, Thursday, Oct. 29, 2020. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some accommodations may require time for the county to arrange.
