TXDOT PROPOSES TO EXPAND EAST ALTON GLOOR BOULEVARD TO SIX-LANE ROADWAY WITH A RAISED MEDIAN

East Alton Gloor

The Texas Department of Transportation is proposing to redesign East Alton Gloor Boulevard from I-69E to Parades Line Road from the existing five lanes to six lanes with a raised median and is seeking public input on the proposal.

A virtual public meeting with an in-person option will be available. The virtual public meeting will be held at 5:00 PM on Monday, February 12, 2024. The in-person option will be held on Tuesday, February 13, 2024, from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM at the Brownsville Events Center at 1 Events Center Blvd.

TxDOT is proposing to redesign East Alton Gloor Boulevard from an existing five-lane roadway with a continuous left turn lane to a six-lane roadway with a raised median and a 10-foot-wide shared-use path in each direction in Cameron County. The existing FM 3248 right-of-way width is 120 feet wide through the length of the project. The proposed new ROW width would be 140 feet wide.

The purpose of the proposed East Alton Gloor Boulevard Project project is to reduce congestion and improve mobility and safety.

The virtual and in-person meetings will be conducted in English and Spanish.

According to TxDOT, the proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional right of way and potentially displace three residences and five non-residential structures. Relocation assistance is available for displaced persons and businesses.

Additionally, the proposed project is anticipated to impact the Brownsville Historic Battlefield Hike and Bike Trail, which is protected by the Department of Transportation Act of 1966. The proposed project would potentially impact about 0.05 acres of trail and associated parking. The portion of the trail within the proposed right of way would be constructed to connect on the project’s proposed shared-use path.
