Open House - Proposed US 87/US 287 Improvements in Dumas

Contact: Sonja Gross

Phone: (806) 356-3256

Date: March 7, 2018

DUMAS – Dumas-area residents are invited to an open house about a project that will rehabilitate US 87/US 287 through town and a section north of the city on US 287 at the abandoned Machovec Railroad crossing. The project’s purpose is to construct a long-lasting, durable, and relatively low-maintenance pavement, while enhancing pedestrian elements that meet ADA requirements.

To help facilitate the roadway rehabilitation project, the city of Dumas will be relocating multiple existing utility lines. All the necessary utility relocation work will be completed prior to the roadway reconstruction beginning. The open house, hosted by the city of Dumas and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), will provide the public details on both the utility relocations and the roadway rehabilitation project.

The open house will take place Thursday, March 29, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Moore County Community Building located at 1600 South Maddox Avenue in Dumas. All interested citizens are invited to attend this open house meeting to discuss the project with city of Dumas and TxDOT representatives. Those with special communication or accommodation needs are encouraged to contact Sonja Gross at (806) 356-3256 at least two days prior to the meeting. TxDOT will make every reasonable effort to accommodate these needs.
