TxDOT Taking Public Input on FM 812 Improvement Project


The Texas Department of Transportation will hold a virtual public hearing with an in-person option for the proposed improvements on FM 812 from US 183 in Travis County to SH 21 in Bastrop County, Texas, and a portion of FM 973 from north of McAngus Road to south of FM 812.

The proposed project would provide a direct route between US 183 and SH 21. The existing two-lane undivided roadway would be widened to a four-lane divided roadway with a continuous center-turn lane from US 183 to Peterson Road in the town of Elroy and a four-lane divided roadway from Peterson Road to SH 21. The project would also relocate a section of FM 812, between US 183 and FM 973, eliminating the existing FM 812 S-curve. Improvements also include a new shared-use path and sidewalks, as well as new drainage. Four bridges along FM 812 and one bridge along FM 973 will also be upgraded.

The virtual public hearing will consist of a pre-recorded presentation and will include both audio and visual components. Materials will be posted online by 5 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 11, 2024.  Additionally, TxDOT will provide an in-person option where attendees will be able to view the presentation, review hard copies of the project materials, ask questions of TxDOT staff, and leave written comments. Comments can be submitted at the in-person option, online, or by mail. More information can be found at www.TxDOT.gov keyword search “FM 812 from US 183.”

The in-person option will be held on Thursday, Jan. 11, 2024, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Camino Real Elementary School, located at 2380 FM 812, Dale, TX, 78616.
