Texas Department of Transportation will have an open house Tuesday to allow residents to learn more about plans to build four miles of one-way frontage roads along U.S. Highway 59.
The project is designed to meet the standards of the future development of Interstate 69 in the Crossroads area. This project is expected to enhance traffic safety along the proposed route.
Stretched from U.S. Highway 87 to Loop 463, the project includes removing median cross-overs and connecting existing driveways to the new frontage roads.
The U.S. 59 overpass at U.S. 87 will also be replaced with a new structure. Construction is scheduled to begin in August 2013.
The proposed work would take place within existing right-of-way. No additional right-of-way would be required for this project.
The open house meeting will give attendees a chance to discuss the project's plans, find answers to questions and see TxDOT's written plan.
