A more than 1-mile portion of US 377 in Roanoke will receive additional upgrades once a current Texas Department of Transportation project is completed in fall 2023, according to Roanoke City Manager Scott Campbell.

Campbell said the city is paying for upgrades regarding stone work and streetlights. The city has also requested that road medians are not filled with concrete to allow for landscaping upgrades once road work is done.

“When this is all finished, I think it's gonna be a really nice addition to the city,” Campbell said. “It is going to be a nice addition for our businesses, just because the flow through town is going to be so much better.”
Money for the beautification of US 377 has been budgeted in the city’s capital improvement planning, Campbell said.

TxDOT began construction in June on a 1.12-mile portion of US 377 in Roanoke.

The road improvement project stretches from Henrietta Creek Road north of Byron Nelson Boulevard to James Street, and it includes the reconstruction and widening of US 377 from a two-lane rural road to a four-lane divided roadway with raised medians and sidewalks, according to TxDOT.
