Public Notice          Project Plans


The applicant proposes to permanently discharge fill into 0.2 acres of open water, 3.57 acres of palustrine emergent wetland, 5.295 acres of palustrine forested wetland, 200 linear feet (LF)/0.032 acre of erosional channels/drainage ditches, 1,279 LF/0.257 acre of ephemeral stream, 616 LF/0.091 acre of intermittent stream, and 69 LF/0.009 acre of perennial stream to expand US Highway (US) 69 in Hardin and Tyler Counties.  A total of 31 distinctive crossings were identified within the project area, specifically including the perennial streams Hickory and Village Creeks, seven ephemeral tributaries, six intermittent tributaries, three erosional channels/drainage ditches, two open waters, 16 emergent wetlands, and 43 forested wetlands that contribute to the Village Creek/Neches River basin.  The proposed project would widen and improve US 69 within the project limits to a four-lane divided roadway with shoulders, an evacuation lane on the northbound lanes, and a median, within an approximately 300-foot-wide right-of-way (ROW).


The purpose of the project is to improve safety and mobility along US 69 during emergency evacuations by reducing the number of conflict points and providing better access.
