Public Meeting - US 271 and Loop 485 in Smith and Gregg Counties


Gladewater Middle School Gymnasium
414 S. Loop 485
Gladewater, TX 75647 (Map)


Tuesday, April 24, 2018
5 p.m. - 7 p.m.


The purpose of the public meeting is to gather public input on the three alignment alternatives. The project’s limits are from FM 16 in Smith County, north to Loop 485, the Loop around Gladewater, and US 271 to the Upshur County line. 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.


The proposed work includes widening the existing two-lane pavement to four lanes with a divided median from FM 16 to Loop 485, and a continuous left turn lane around the Loop and US 271 to the county line. The project will require new right-of-way from adjacent property owners.

Special accommodations: TxDOT makes every reasonable effort to accommodate the needs of the public. The meeting 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 (903) 510-9100 at least five working days prior to the meeting. Please be aware that advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.

The environmental review, consultation and other actions required by applicable federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried out by TxDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated Dec. 16, 2014, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT.

Comments must be received on or before Friday, May 11, 2018, to be a part of the official meeting record.
