TxDot Sets Meetings Set for Doniphan Drive Corridor Plan

Community members are invited to provide feedback on recommended improvements for Doniphan Drive. The Corridor Plan encompasses Doniphan Drive (SH 20) from the Texas/New Mexico state line to Racetrack Drive.

“We welcome people to drop by during this open house and get a sense of what is being proposed and stay as long as they would like,” said TxDOT District Engineer Bob Bielek, DPA, P.E. “These public platforms provide the community an opportunity to learn about upcoming construction projects at their leisure and make an impact. It is important they be informed and have their questions answered ahead of any project starting.”

These meetings are in an open house format with maps, plan details and animations, and will be staffed by TxDOT and consultants ready to answer questions in English and Spanish. The latest meeting is the third series before final recommendations are made.

Improvements in the plans for the 15-mile stretch include a median, a shared use path, drainage improvements, a roundabout in Vinton, a “High –T” allowing thru traffic to proceed at Talbot, lane expansions, aesthetics and continuous lighting.

Sets of improvements are divided in phases as they relate to future transportation and development needs along the corridor through 2040.

Community members interested in learning more about the plans, but are not able to attend this round of public hearings can view details and provide feedback online by visiting www.txdot.gov and searching “Doniphan Drive”.
