Monday the Texas Department of Transportation along with the City of Brownwood held a public hearing to inform the public about the proposed changes to FM 2524 (Austin Avenue).

The hearing also gave Brownwood residents a chance to state their concerns or comments about the project.

The proposed project would include storm drainage, bridge widening at Willis Creek, sidewalks, and widened pavement to accommodate four lanes from Brooks Street to Norweed Street.

The project would cost about $5.5 million dollars.
