The Loop 281 corridor provides region-wide accessibility in and around the Longview area. To address long-term growth and needs, the Longview Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is conducting a corridor study of E. Loop 281, between Tryon Road and Page Road/Delia Drive, to address corridor needs as well as address the critical intersections at Tryon Road, Hollybrook Drive, Alpine Road (FM 2208) and Page Road/Delia Drive. This corridor study is intended to develop roadway and intersection alternatives to support enhanced connectivity, safety, and travel efficiency along E. Loop 281 for the benefit of all users of the roadway network.

The study will include:

  • Short-term and long-term actions to be undertaken that will enhance circulation and traffic flow efficiency, improve safety, improve bicycle and pedestrian accommodation, and enhance the movement of people and goods
  • A review of volume-to-capacity ratios, crash analyses, and public input as part of the identification process
  • A determination of alternative alignments and recommended re-alignments, in particular at the intersection of Loop 281 and Tryon Road, Hollybrook Drive, Alpine Road (FM 2208) and PageRoad/Delia Drive, to support enhanced connectivity, safety and travel efficiency along E. Loop 281; and for re-alignments and capacity improvements to support efficient and safe intersections for all users of the roadway network.
