The proposed project on US 82 in Bowie County from 0.1 mile west of US 259 to 0.4 mile south of I-30 includes widening US 82 to a 4-lane roadway with a continuous center left-turn lane. In order to accommodate pedestrians, sidewalks are proposed within the city limits of De Kalb. In addition, a portion of the project will include a drainage design featuring a new storm drain system with inlets. The proposed typical section includes relocation of the existing trail approximately 25 feet to the south. The trail relocation will include the clearing and grading necessary to reestablish the trail. The trail reconstruction could possibly begin prior to the roadway widening. Additional right of way will be required for sections including from 0.1 mile west of US 259 to FM 1840, and from SH 98 to 0.3 mile east of I-30.
The proposed improvements to US 82 at US 259 in Bowie County, Texas include widening, realigning, and reconstructing the ramps on the east and west side of US 259. Additional ROW width is being acquired along the east and west side of the US 259 ramps.
