The Texas Department of Transportation has scheduled a public hearing for 6 p.m. Thursday, April 27, to present the planned improvements and to solicit public comment on the proposed construction of a new location two-lane roadway, State Loop (SL) 255 (formerly designated as Farm-to-Market Road (FM) 3535) from FM 1520 to US Highway (US) 271 in Camp County.
The meeting is at the Region 8 Education Service Center, 4845 U.S. 271, Pittsburg.
According to the Texas DOT, a portion (approximately 0.6 miles) of SL 255 would be built along existing County Road (CR) 2116, while the remainder (approximately 1.9 miles) would be constructed as a new location roadway. The existing CR 2116 roadway is an oil-sand surface and base with two 9 foot travel lanes and no shoulders. CR 2116 originates at the eastern end of the proposed project and runs to the west for approximately 0.6 mile where it terminates at CR 2110. The existing right-of-way (ROW) width is approximately 50 feet.
