TTC 69 Draft Environmental Study Released Today

Today, Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), in coordination with
the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), released the I-69/TTC Draft
Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS).

The 1,072-page report recommends additional detailed examination and
public comment on a narrower study area to see where I-69/TTC can be
located while minimizing environmental impacts. Using existing highways
will be considered first as state transportation officials continue work
to identify an alignment.

The complete DEIS can be found at www.KeepTexasMoving.com. Printed copies will be available in public libraries within the corridor in the coming weeks, as well as local TxDOT area and district offices.

What’s Next?
TxDOT will begin an unprecedented public involvement effort.
In January, 10 town hall meetings will be held along the corridor to
answer questions about the Trans-Texas Corridor.
Beginning in February, 46 public hearings are scheduled to take public
comment on the DEIS document.

These dates and locations will be released soon.
