Purpose:

The purpose of the hearing is to present the planned improvements and to receive public comment on the proposed project, approximately 7.96 miles of improvements to SL 335 from FM 2590 to SW 9th Avenue in Randall and Potter counties. Displays and staff will be available at 6 p.m., for review and questions, and the formal hearing will begin at 6:30 p.m., with a public commenting period after. Comments must be received on or before Friday, June 23, 2017.

Description:

The proposed project consists of upgrading existing roadways and a new location alignment to a controlled access facility including bicycle and pedestrian accommodations. The proposed project would generally follow the FM 2186 alignment west from FM 2590 to Helium Road, Helium Road north to near the Randall/Potter county line, and veer northeast on a new location alignment crossing I-40 and  BI-40 to merge with the existing SL 335 near SW 9th Avenue.

The proposed controlled access facility would include four 12-foot mainlanes (two in each direction), grade separated over intersecting cross streets, two-lane frontage roads with a 12-foot wide inside lane and a 14-foot wide outside shared-use lane to accommodate bicycles, and connecting ramps. The design will accommodate future expansion to an ultimate six-mainlane section. The proposed project would include 6-foot sidewalks on both sides of SL 335.
