CSJ: 0048-08-049

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will hold a public meeting regarding the proposed widening of I-35E from 2.17 miles south of FM 566 (Hill/Ellis County Line) to US 77 south of Waxahachie. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at the Italy High School Cafeteria, 300 College Street, Italy, Texas 76651. The meeting will be held in an open house format from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM.

The purpose of the Public Meeting is to present the proposed project to the public and receive comments. The proposed project would widen approximately 18.8 miles of I-35E from four to six lanes by converting the existing 12-foot outside shoulder to a third mainlane with the addition of a new 10-foot outside shoulder, which will include minor ramp alignment modifications at various locations along I-35E. The purpose of the project is to reduce congestion and enhance safety by accommodating traffic volumes along this section of I-35E. The proposed improvements would not require additional right-of-way or drainage easements. No displacements would be required as a result of the proposed project.

Open House: 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM
