In-person attendees will be able to view the same video presented at the online public meeting which will be playing on a screen, review hard copies of project materials, ask questions of TxDOT staff and/or consultants, and leave written comments. Representatives from TxDOT and its consultants will be available to answer individual questions.
|Purpose||The purpose of this public meeting is to receive public comments on the proposed widening of SH 315 from US 259 to the Panola County line in Rusk County, Texas. This notice advises the public that TxDOT will be conducting an online virtual public meeting on the proposed project with an in-person open house.|
|Description||The existing two-lane roadway includes two 12-foot travel lanes and two 8-foot shoulders, and the proposed four-lane roadway being evaluated would include two 12-foot lanes with 10-foot shoulders in both directions separated by a median. The purpose of the proposed project is to increase the safety along the corridor and to update the roadway and intersections to current design standards. The project would require additional right-of-way. The amount of right-of-way required varies depending on the alternatives developed.
|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 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 or in-person option, please contact the TxDOT Public Information Office at 903-510-9267 no later than 4 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 21, 2023. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.|
