A section of US Hwy. 96 in San Augustine County is among some 200 initial road projects statewide the Texas Department of Transportation will be funding with Proposition 1 money this year.
The proposed $7 million project would add passing lanes and reconstruct pavement on US 96 from the Shelby County line, southward to FM 3451 in San Augustine County.
The first-round projects were announced at a public meeting Tuesday.
TxDOT is accepting formal public comments regarding the proposed projects from Jan. 23 to Feb. 23.
Comments can be submitted via email to TPP_UTP@txdot.gov or by phone 800-687-8108.
In December, the Texas Comptroller certified that $1.74 billion would be available for transportation in 2015.
Proposition 1 was passed by Texas voters in November.
