TxDOT Holds Open House for Plans to Extend Loop 390


 THURSDAY, JANUARY 31, 2019

Marshall Civic Center 

2501 East End Blvd South, Marshall, TX 75672

OPEN HOUSE 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM 

 The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) proposes construction of a new location  roadway between U.S. Highway 80 (US 80) and Interstate Highway 20 (I-20) on the east side of Marshall in Harrison County. The approximately six-mile roadway, designated as State Loop 390 (SL 390), would be designed to interstate standards and would eventually become part of the US 59 Relief Route and the future Interstate Highway 369 (I-369) (part of the I-69 system through Texas). The proposed roadway would connect to the existing SL 390 at US 80 to the north and would terminate south of I-20, extending the partial loop around Marshall that currently exists. The meeting will be held in an open house format from 5:00 to 7:00 PM, and no formal presentation is planned.

The proposed section of SL 390 would include two mainlanes in each direction separated by a grassy median. One-way frontage roads may be constructed on either side of the proposed roadway. The improvements would be constructed within a 538-foot typical right of way width throughout the majority of the project area. Proposed improvements along I-20 include the addition of entrance and exit ramps and frontage roads.  The proposed project is anticipated to require approximately 540 acres of new right of way.    

For more information and special accommodation requests contact Ms. Katie Martin, at Katie.Martin@txdot.gov or (903) 799-1342.  Requests for special accommodations should be made at least two days prior to the open house. 

  Maps and other information concerning the project will be available at the open house. This information will also be available for public review Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. at the TxDOT Atlanta District Office located at 701 East Main Street, Atlanta, TX 75551-2418, and at the TxDOT Marshall Area Office, located at East Loop 390 North, Marshall, TX 75670.
