Public hearing set for Cresson bypass

January 25, 2014

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will hold a public hearing next month about the planned Cresson bypass.

The purpose of the hearing is to present information and to make displays available for viewing.

The meeting will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 25, at Bear Creek Community Church, 18600 Highway 377 South in Cresson.

The public will be able to view the displays starting at 6:30 p.m.

The public hearing will begin at 7.

Local officials have been pushing for the bypass because at times traffic flow is impeded at the intersection of Highway 377 and Highway 171. The proposed project west of Cresson encompasses portions of both Hood and Johnson counties.

It is about 3 miles long and begins one mile south of the intersection of U.S. 377 and SH 171, and ends approximately one mile north of the intersection.

It will be a four-lane divided roadway. The relief route will bridge over SH 171 and the railroad.

At the southern limit, it will bridge over Old Granbury Road, with ramps allowing access to the existing highway.

At the northern project limit, the relief route will pass under a proposed access road. Ramps will provide highway access.
