NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING TO BE HELD ON PROPOSED IMPROVEMENTS
TO BS 288B IN ANGLETON
Houston – The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will conduct a Public Meeting regarding the proposed improvements to BS 288B, from Henderson Road to Wilkins Street in Angleton, Texas.
The meeting will be held Thursday, August 9, 2012 at Angleton Junior High School, 1201 Henderson Road in Angleton, Texas 77515. The meeting will be held in an open house format from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Representatives from TxDOT and the study team will be available to answer questions.
The purpose of the meeting is to present the proposed roadway improvements and to gather public input. The purpose of the proposed project is to increase safety and relieve congestion along BS 288B through access management. The proposed design would construct a 14-foot wide raised median between Henderson Road and Wilkins Street. The existing continuous left turn lane would be replaced with a raised median and dedicated left turn bays at select intersections.
Additionally, existing BS 288B would be widened by approximately 5 feet from Lorraine Drive to approximately 400 feet north of Lorraine Drive to extend a merging lane for northbound traffic. All work would be conducted within the existing right-of-way. The speed limit would remain as posted.
