PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Proposed improvements consist of reconstructing US 80 from FM 460 to Spur 557 from a four-lane divided to a six-lane divided highway with auxiliary lanes and a concrete barrier along the centerline.  Proposed improvements along Spur 557 also consist of reconstructing Spur 557 from a four-lane divided to a six-lane divided highway with auxiliary lanes and a concrete barrier along the median.  The proposed improvements to both US 80 and Spur 557 would include adding continuous two to three-lane, one-way frontage roads in each direction.  Ramping improvements, bridge reconstruction, shared use paths and sidewalks are proposed for both US 80 and Spur 557.  The total project length is approximately 12.1 miles.
