Notice Affording Opportunity for Public Hearing - FM 565


Purpose: TxDOT, in conjunction with Enterprise Products Operating LLC, proposes a roadway extension of Farm to Market Road (FM) 565 from Loop 207 to State Highway (SH) 146 in Mont Belvieu, Chambers County, Texas.
   
Description: The proposed project is designed to enhance mobility and improve safety by providing a direct connection for FM 565 to SH 146 and removing the portion of Loop 207 from FM 565 south to SH 146 that currently bisects an industrial facility. Enterprise Products Operating LLC proposes to:
  • Construct the FM 565 extension as a two-lane roadway and incorporate the existing Avenue B alignment
  • Install a traffic signal at the new intersection of SH 146/FM 565 with turn lanes on FM 565 and SH 146
  • Donate right of way and construction costs
This proposed roadway extension project involves approximately 2.96 acres of additional right of way plus the right of way of the existing Avenue B for a total right-of-way width of 120 feet. Although additional right of way is required, no houses would be displaced; however, there is a potential for relocating businesses.

Any interested person may request that a public hearing be held covering the social, economic and environmental effects of the project on or before Tuesday, March 24, 2015. In the event a public hearing is requested, one will be scheduled and notices will be published about the hearing date and location.
