The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will conduct a public meeting to seek comments on the proposed reconstruction and widening of US 287 from I-45 in Corsicana to County Road Southeast (CR SE) 2040 in Mildred, a distance of approximately 5.7 miles. TxDOT staff will be on hand to answer questions about the proposed project. The meetings will be held in an open house format so citizens can come and go at their convenience.


The proposed project would reconstruct and widen existing US 287 to a four-lane divided roadway with shoulders and would include sidewalks, intersection improvements and left-turn and right-turn lanes at designated locations. The project would widen the existing bridge spanning the Lake Halbert and Railroad overpass. The right-of-way (ROW) width would vary from 100 to 486 feet. Additional ROW would be required.

Written comments must be postmarked by Monday, Aug. 22, 2016, to be included in the Public Meeting Summary. Persons interested in attending this meeting who have special communication, language interpreter or accommodation needs are encouraged to contact the TxDOT Dallas District Public Information Office at (214) 320‐6100 at least two working days prior to the meeting. Every reasonable effort will be made to accommodate these needs. 

The environmental review, consultation and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried out by TxDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 16, 2014, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT.
