PARIS – The Texas Department of Transportation will host an online virtual public meeting at 5:00 pm August 13 to gather public input on proposed improvements for U.S. 82 from the intersection of B.U. 82 and State Highway 37 to FM 412 in Clarksville, Texas.
A pre-recorded audio and video presentation will cover several improvements proposed for this portion of U.S. 82 in Red River County. This proposed project aims to improve safety, mobility, and regional connectivity, manage congestion, and address roadway deficiencies. After the online presentation, residents can provide comments and input that will help TxDOT improve this vital roadway.
The pre-recorded presentation will explain the proposed improvements and includes maps of the project location and design. Proposed improvements consist of widening U.S. 82 from a two-lane undivided highway to a four-lane divided rural highway. Other proposed improvements include reconstruction of interchanges, ramps, bridges, and sidewalk, trail and drainage upgrades.
