Meeting set for route plan


The Bryan District of the Texas Department of Transportation is evaluating alternatives for a proposed relief route around Madisonville.

The proposed route would be on a new location and would require the acquisition of right of way. The purpose of this relief route would be to alleviate congestion through the community of Madisonville, while increasing safety, connectivity, and mobility along the SH 21 corridor.

This meeting is scheduled for Monday, Dec. 4, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Truman Kimbro Convention Center. Maps showing the preferred and pervious alternatives will be on display and TxDOT staff will be available to discuss the project.

Interested citizens are invited to attend and may come and go at their convenience. Information about this project is also available on the TxDOT Projects and Studies web page at Updated meeting displays will be available for viewing on the web page after the public meeting.

Comments may be made at the meeting or in writing by Dec. 14, to Chad Bohne P.E., Bryan Director of Transportation Planning and Development at: TxDOT, 2591 North Earl Rudder Freeway, Bryan, TX 77803.
