VICTORIA, Texas – TxDOT contractor crews will begin scoping out the area of Navarro and Loop 463 next week for a beautification project. The City of Victoria announced last May that it had entered into an agreement with TxDOT. The agreement will help fund a beautification project on Loop 463 at Navarro St. and John Stockbauer Drive. The project will build onto the existing flowerbeds by adding new beds and landscaping.
This map provided by TxDOT shows the proposed locations of new flowerbeds and trees at the intersection of Loop 463 and Navarro Street.
Due to the project’s central location, the City worked with TxDOT to make sure it would have an eye-catching, entryway-style design.
The project will include:
- Six new flowerbeds, two of which will be planted on a raised sandstone structure matching the City’s entryway signs
- A mix of native plants and perennial flowering plants
- Shade trees, fruiting trees, ornamental trees and additional plantings below the trees
- Decorative lighting
In Fall 2021, the project was put up for bid, and it’s expected to finish in May 2022.

The City will contribute $200,000 toward the cost of the $516,000 project. TxDOT will maintain the landscaping for one year. The City will then take over responsibility for maintenance.
The project is part of TxDot’s Green Ribbon Program, which aims to improve air quality by adding greenery to highways. You can find more information by contacting TxDOT at 800-558-9368. You can also visit txdot.gov.
