The US 77 Woodsboro/Refugio Route Study builds on the recommendations and progress of the I-69 Advisory Committee and the I-69 Segment Committee. The study will review potential route options and environmental constraints for developing I-69 from the city of Woodsboro to the city of Refugio. 

Three route options from Woodsboro to Refugio will be identified including:

  • A route east of the existing US 77
  • A route west of the existing US 77
  • A route using the existing US 77

Study Purpose and Need

The study is needed to identify options for routing I-69 from Woodsboro to Refugio. The traffic in this area has increased in recent years, and traffic, especially freight traffic, is anticipated to increase in the future. In addition, the I-69 route will need to meet interstate design standards, minimize impacts to environmental resources, and consider how routing could affect the economic viability and connectivity of the two cities.

The purpose of the study is to identify route options that provide an option for I-69 that meets interstate design standards, has minimal environmental impacts, and accounts for economic viability and connectivity of Woodsboro and Refugio.

Specific details for the public meeting including date, time and location will be provided at a later date. In addition, two stakeholder meetings will be held from May 2017 to September 2017.
