The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) San Angelo District is proposing to widen US 83 from FM 2291 south of Menard to I-10 north of Junction in Menard and Kimble counties, Texas.


The proposed project would extend for approximately 26 miles along US 83, which currently consists of a rural, two-lane undivided highway with alternating Super-2 passing lanes within a 120-foot-wide right of way. The proposed project would evaluate alignment alternatives to widen US 83 within a 370-foot-wide right of way. The proposed project would be constructed in two phases; Phase I (interim design) would primarily widen US 83 to a four-lane divided highway; Phase II (ultimate design) would widen US 83 to a controlled-access interstate system by constructing frontage roads on either side of the interim design mainlanes.

The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional right of way and an analysis will be conducted to determine whether the proposed project would result in impacts to environmental resources or result in potential displacements, as the project develops.
