TxDOT is evaluating the four-lane undivided section of US 82 from the Archer County line to FM 369 in Wichita County. Planned improvements include updating the roadway to current design standards and providing a safer roadway for the traveling public.
The 4.5-mile project extending from the Archer County line to FM 369 includes:
Due to accidents in the area, citizen concerns with the 60-mph posted speed limit, and numerous intersecting driveways, TxDOT began looking at ways to improve this stretch of roadway. Some citizens would like to widen the existing road; others prefer a four-lane divided roadway on a new alignment away from the existing road; however, after public involvement activities and receiving input from local citizens, TxDOT has decided to widen the existing roadway. TxDOT is working with engineering consultant Kimley-Horn to develop a schematic to widen the existing roadway.
Stakeholder meetings were held in the Summer and Fall of 2016 followed by a public meeting on Feb. 9, 2017.
TxDOT is planning to hold another public meeting in the Summer of 2020 to present the preliminary schematic and to gather feedback. Development of Right-of-Way surveys will begin in 2020.
