TxDOT to host public meeting Oct. 25 on realignment of FM 1776


COYANOSA – A public meeting to discuss the possible realignment of FM 1776 in the area of FM 1450 in Pecos County is scheduled from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25, 2018, at the Coyanosa Community Hall, 4646 Frank Street in Coyanosa.

The meeting is designed to present the proposed alignment of FM 1776. The project area stretches from approximately two miles north of FM 1450 to two miles south of FM 1450. Project phasing will also be discussed. Maps of the area and other displays will be available for review and comment. TxDOT staff will be available to answer questions.

The meeting will consist of an open house from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., followed by a brief presentation and a question-and-answer session from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m..

The Odessa District of TxDOT proposes to realign FM 1776 to remove the offset intersection and provide a continuous alignment for FM 1776 across FM 1450 in northwest Pecos County. The purpose of the proposed project is to correct operational deficiencies and increase mobility. Relocation of FM 1776 will require the acquisition of new right of way as well as relocation of some utilities.

Written comments from the public regarding the project are requested and may be submitted at the meeting, in person or by mail. Comments must be postmarked by Friday, Nov. 9, 2018, to be part of the official meeting record. Comments may be sent to Paul Aparicio at paul.aparicio@txdot.gov or mailed to Project Manager, Texas Department of Transportation, 125 E. 11th Street, Austin, TX, 78701.

The meeting will be conducted in English. People interested in attending the meeting who have special communication or accommodation needs are encouraged to contact Gene Powell at the TxDOT Odessa District Public Information Office at (432) 498-4746, at least two working days prior to the meeting. TxDOT will make every reasonable effort to accommodate other special needs, as required.
