TxDOT SH 6 Public Meeting in Gorman, February 19

GORMAN – The Texas Department of Transportation will conduct a second public meeting for the purpose of soliciting public comment on proposed improvements to SH 6 in Gorman, from 0.18 miles north of Crescent Street to the Comanche County Line.

The meeting will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2019 at Gorman’s Maxfield Elementary School Auditorium located at 114 W. Lexington Ave., Gorman, Texas 76454. The meeting will be an open house format from 5 – 7 p.m., and attendees are free to come and go. There will be a formal presentation beginning at 6 p.m. TxDOT staff will be on hand to answer questions before and after the presentation.

The proposed SH 6 improvements would include the full reconstruction of the roadway pavement, which is failing in many places. Concrete curbs, gutters and sidewalks would also be added or upgraded throughout the length of the project. All sidewalks would conform to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements.

This and other public information is also on file and available for public inspection at the TxDOT Brownwood District Office located at 2495 US Highway 183 North, Brownwood, TX 76802.
