The Texas Department of Transportation invites citizens to learn about the planning and design of a potential US 82 reliever route in Gainesville. US 82 is a major thoroughfare for motorists and trucks and as population and commercial activity continue to grow in the area, it has become necessary to move forward with the planning and design of a reliever route that can more adequately meet the capacity and safety needs of the corridor.
A study is currently underway to identify a recommended alignment that can be carriedforward into future phases of project development. Members of the project development team and engineering consultants will be on hand to answer questions. No formal presentation will be given. Attendees are invited to come and go at their convenience.
The US 82 Reliever Route Study focuses on an area southeast of Gainesville in Cooke County, Texas, that is generally bound by I-35 to the west and FM 678 to the east. This effort has built upon the previous US 82 Feasibility Study, completed in December 2012. The current study is evaluating different types of roadway configurations.
To best understand community needs and concerns, local community leaders have been engaged for the study. Similar to other TxDOT studies, a working group has been established to help TxDOT identify and assess transportation needs, and to review technical data and planning assumptions. Working group members include county commissioners, city staff and local business representatives.
People interested in attending who have special communication or accommodation needs, or need an interpreter, are encouraged to call (940) 720-7700 at least three working days prior to the meeting. Every reasonable effort will be made to accommodate these needs.
