The Texas Department of Transportation is holding a public meeting to discuss proposed improvements to U.S. 81/U.S. 287 from south of Avondale-Haslet Road to I-35W. The meeting will be held 6-8 p.m. Nov. 14 at LifePoint Fellowship Church, 12501 U.S. 287 in Haslet.

The public meeting will be an open house format with no formal presentation. Written comments must be submitted by Nov. 29 to be part of the official record.

The proposed project would add one inside main lane in each direction and convert two-way to one-way frontage roads. The existing interchanges would be reconstructed. Willow Springs Road is proposed to cross under U.S. 81/U.S. 287 main lanes. An interchange is proposed at Heritage Trace Parkway. Wagley Robertson Road would be connected to the proposed frontage roads.

A number of entrance and exit ramp locations would be adjusted to facilitate more efficient access to adjacent properties. Additional right of way and denial of access at ramp locations would be necessary to accommodate the proposed improvements.
