TxDOT is providing an in-person public meeting option for individuals who would like to participate in person instead of online. In-person attendees will be able to view the same information delivered in the online public meeting, review hard copies of project materials, ask questions of TxDOT staff and/or consultants, and leave written comments. Attendees may come and go at their convenience; the formal presentation will begin at 6:30 p.m.
|Purpose||TxDOT San Angelo District is conducting a virtual public meeting with an in-person option to share information and gather input from the public regarding improvements to FM 2288 from US 87 to US 67 in the city of San Angelo and Tom Green County.|
The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is considering improvements to FM 2288 from US 87 to US 67 in the city of San Angelo to improve safety and mobility for all modes of traffic – vehicular, pedestrian and bicycle – along the 11.4-mile corridor. Proposed improvements include the full roadway reconstruction and widening from US 67 to north of Arden Road. This would allow for two through lanes for each direction, a two-way, left-turn lane or exclusive left turn lanes and right turn lanes where warranted. Proposed improvements also include adding 8'-wide shoulders on both sides of the roadway and a continuous shared use path along the east side of the corridor. Drainage improvements, the addition of a curb and gutter section for the Grape Creek area between US 87 and Old Sterling City Hwy #1 and a new bridge structure at the North Concho River are also proposed. Existing and proposed right of way information is currently being determined for this project. The project is currently under schematic and environmental review with anticipated environmental clearance in February 2025.
|Accessibility||The virtual public meeting and in-person option will be conducted in English. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language or 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 are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the virtual public meeting or in-person option, please contact Pamela Stark, TxDOT Public Information Officer, at (325) 947-9323 no later than 4 p.m. CT, Monday, Oct. 30, 2023. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for the Texas Department of Transportation to arrange.|
