WACO The Texas Department of Transportation will host a virtual public meeting with an in-person option for the proposed US 190/SH 36 improvements from Temple to Rogers to accommodate the future I-14 extension. TxDOT will share information about the project and provide opportunities for community members to ask questions and share input on it.

These improvements will create better mobility, connectivity and safety between urban and rural areas, military installations, maritime ports and economic sectors, including freight, energy, timber and agriculture. The limits of the I-14 Extension project from Temple to Rogers (also referred to as “Segment 3”) are along US 190/SH 36 from SH 95 to BU 190. This corridor is part of a larger project that will extend I-14 from Belton, TX, to BU 190 in Rogers, TX, comprising a total of three segments.

A virtual public meeting will be available on Thursday, July 11, 2024, by 5 p.m. To view the materials, go to TxDOT.gov and search “I-14 Extension.” These materials will consist of informational display boards shown at the in-person public meeting and the opportunity to provide feedback.

The in-person public meeting will be held on Thursday, July 11, 2024, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Rogers High School Cafeteria (Bonds Building), 1 Eagle Drive, Rogers, TX 76569. Displays will be available for viewing beginning at 5 p.m. A formal presentation is not planned for this public meeting, and community members are invited to come and go at their convenience.
