Ahead of an upcoming virtual public meeting on July 16, 2020, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) recently revealed its plans in proposing both short- and long-term plans to improve Loop 286 around Paris.
The proposal calls for a project length of 15.5 miles to increase “needed geometric and safety improvements.” The organization said the public meeting will be held on July 16, and the video along with other materials will be available through the comment period deadline of Friday, July 31, 2020.
Project details are available to the public by clicking here and are listed below as well:
“The project is currently in the schematic and environmental phase of design and analysis, which is one of the early stages in the project development life cycle. The purpose of this stage of design is to determine project needs including evaluating travel demand, mobility needs, safety improvements, environmental impacts and impacts on existing and planned developments. Once a preferred alternative is determined, the project team will prepare a preliminary roadway design and perform an environmental assessment of the proposed project. This process includes two public meetings and a public hearing that will allow the public to learn more about the project, view alternatives and potential improvements and provide input on the project.”
