US 77 from FM 66 to N of McMillan Street - Public Meeting

Tuesday, February 16, 2016

CSJ: 0048-03-050

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will hold a public meeting regarding the proposed improvements to United States Highway 77 (US 77) from Farm-to-Market (FM) 66 to north of McMillan Street in Waxahachie, Ellis County, Texas. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 16, 2016, at the Waxahachie Civic Center located at 2000 Civic Center Lane, Waxahachie, Texas 75165. The meeting will be held in an open house format from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The purpose of the Public Meeting is to present the proposed project to the public and receive comments. The proposed project involves demolition and replacement of the existing US 77 Viaduct with a northbound bridge and construction of a new parallel bridge to the west of the Viaduct for southbound traffic. The project also involves reconstruction of the existing US 77 (Elm Street) and Monroe Street to provide a couplet system that would tie into the proposed bridges. Both bridges would cross over a linear park (Waxahachie Creek Hike and Bike Trail). The purpose of the proposed project is to overcome the inadequacies and structural deterioration of the existing US 77 Viaduct and to provide better mobility through downtown Waxahachie. The proposed improvements would potentially require approximately 3.8 acres of new right of way (ROW) and 0.13 acre for proposed easements.

Public Meeting (Open House Format) : 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
