Virtual details

The virtual public meeting will be posted below beginning Monday, Nov. 28, 2022 at 4 p.m., and will remain online through Tuesday, Dec. 13, 2022, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. Please note, this is not a live event. The materials can be viewed at your convenience.

Additionally, TxDOT is providing an in-person meeting for individuals who would like to participate in person instead of online. In-person attendees will be able to review the same materials and presentation as the online public meeting.

Purpose The TxDOT and City of Temple are proposing to widen a portion of Old Waco Road from 522 feet south of Jupiter Drive to 20 feet north of Riverside Trail in Bell County, Texas.
Description

The proposed project includes:

  • A four-lane divided facility, approximately 1.3 miles in length, along the existing alignment with two, 12-foot lanes in each direction
  • A five-foot outside bike lane in each direction
  • A separated ten-foot hike-and-bike trail will be constructed in each direction to better accommodate multimodal transportation
  • A curb and gutter would also be installed along the edge of the roadway to convey drainage

To accommodate the proposed improvements, approximately 26 acres of new right-of-way would be required for the project. The new right-of-way width for the proposed project would be widened to approximately 180 feet.

Accessibility

The virtual public hearing 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 hearing, please contact Kasberg Patrick & Associates (KPA Engineers), at (254) 899-6314 no later than 4 p.m. CT, Nov. 21, 2022. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for the Texas Department of Transportation to arrange.
