TYLER (KYTX)-April 22, 2014 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., in the Rose Room at the Rose Garden Center (420 Rose Park Drive, Tyler, Texas). The I-20 East Texas Corridor Study being conducted by TxDOT is focused on evaluating the current safety and capacity needs along the 155-mile stretch of I-20 from I-635 in Dallas to the Texas/Louisiana state line.

The Tyler Area Metropolitan Plan Organization (TAMPO), as a member of the Advisory Committee, is charged with assisting TxDOT in assessing the rural transportation needs along I-20 by providing locally focused input and recommendations.

The Tyler Area Metropolitan Planning Organization would like to gather the public’s input on the stretch of I-20 located within Smith County.

“Getting Smith County residents’ input is critical to ensuring that the study captures the concerns for our region,” said Heather Nick, MPO executive director.

The I-20 corridor currently serves as an integral east-west connection for both travel and trade in Texas. As the interstate system ages and trade increases, identifying opportunities for improvement becomes more critical. Assessing the current corridor conditions and identifying future growth potential are important to ensuring this route meets the needs of the region for decades to come.

The Tyler Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (TAMPO) will be hosting an open house to gather input on the study. More information about the I-20 East Texas Corridor Study can be found at: http://www.txdot.gov/inside-txdot/projects/studies/statewide/i20-east-corridor.html.
