Public invited to US 69 study open house


An open house meeting for the US 69 Feasibility Study will be held from 5 to 7 p.m., Tuesday, July 17, at the First Christian Church, 4202 S. Broadway Avenue in Tyler. The open house will be an opportunity for the public to learn about the study, ask questions, and provide input on ways to enhance safety and improve mobility along Smith County’s most congested corridor.

Traffic conditions along the US 69 (S. Broadway Ave.) corridor from Amherst Street to F.M. 2813 through Tyler are expected to almost double in the next 25 years. In an effort to address the current and future traffic-related delays, the City of Tyler and the Tyler Area Municipal Planning Organization (MPO) have partnered with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) to conduct the US 69 Feasibility Study.

The open house will provide the opportunity for one-on-one discussions with the project team and interactive stations where the Tyler community can obtain information on traffic data collected, goals and objectives of the project, potential road design concepts, intersections, and interchanges. Surveys and comment forms will be available for attendees to provide feedback at the come and go workshop.

The open house will be conducted in English. Persons interested in attending the open house who have special communication or accommodation needs, such as the need for an interpreter, are encouraged to call (903) 600-6402. Requests should be made at least five days prior to the public workshop. Every reasonable effort will be made to accommodate these needs.

Official written comments will also be received and accepted by the project team via email at, or by mail at TxDOT Tyler District, Attn: Advanced Project Development Office, 2709 W. Front Street Tyler, TX 75702. Comments must be received by Wednesday, August 1, to be included in the official record of this public workshop.
