Notice Virtual Public Meeting US 190 / SH 6 Alignment Study: South Robertson County From South of Hearne to Texas-OSR CSJ: 0049-07-065 Robertson County, Texas The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is holding a virtual public meeting to receive input on conceptual improvements along US 190 / SH 6 (State Highway 6) in south Robertson County. An alignment study has been undertaken to address safety and improve mobility along SH 6. The study extends from south of Hearne to Texas-OSR in Robertson County, approximately 11.5 miles. As the project is further developed, public engagement will continue to seek public input on proposed improvements. This notice advises the public that TxDOT will be conducting an on-line virtual public meeting on the proposed project. The virtual meeting will be available starting on Wednesday, June 30, 2021 at 3:00 p.m. To log onto the virtual public meeting, go to the following web address at the date and time indicated above: www.txdot.gov, keyword search “SH 6 Robertson”. Project staff will give a pre-recorded presentation that will include both audio and visual components. Please note that the presentation will not be available on the website until the time and date listed above. If you do not have internet access, you may call Steve Higgins, P.E., (979) 778-2165 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, to ask questions and access project materials during the project development process. Formal comments may be provided by mail or email as explained below. The existing SH 6 south of Hearne to Texas-OSR generally consists of a four-lane undivided highway with two 12-foot travel lanes in each direction and 6-foot outside shoulders. Some segments contain a 14-foot wide center turn lane or a 4-foot wide flush median. In addition, TxDOT recently constructed acceleration and deceleration lanes along this corridor at selected locations to improve safety. The existing right of way varies from 150 to 330 feet. The proposed conceptual improvements would upgrade SH 6 to a four-lane divided highway with two lanes in each direction separated by a grassy median. Additional right of way would be required along the proposed corridor. The project improvements would generally follow the existing alignment. For the segment near Campbell’s Creek at the Union Pacific Railroad, a new crossing may be developed. Any environmental documentation or studies, maps and drawings showing the project location and design, tentative construction schedules, and other information regarding the proposed project are available online at www.txdot.gov, keyword search “SH 6 Robertson”. The virtual public meeting will be conducted in English.
