PECOS, Texas (Big 2/Fox 24) – Officials in Reeves County are ready to pitch their reliever route ideas to the community. County officials announced Thursday they will hold a community meeting to do just that next week.
In an open house style meeting, county officials will outline various reliever routes ranging from a three-lane-roadway to a divided four-lane roadway. The goal is to provide an alternate route for intercity traffic to bypass the business district in Pecos, according to a release.
County officials say the preferred route was designed following comments from the first public meeting they held back in May. The preferred route would create a loop around the Pecos business district and connect between FM 2119 on the north side of town and Highway 17 on the south side of town, according to a release.
In the open-house style meeting, the community will have a chase to see the proposed routes, ask questions and share their questions, comments and concerns with county officials.
The meeting will take place from 4-7 p.m. July 17 at Odessa College’s Pecos Center, 1000 S. Eddy Street, Pecos.
