Thursday, Jan. 11, 2018
Open House - 6 p.m.
Formal Hearing - 7 p.m.

Purpose:

The purpose of the public hearing is to present the proposed widening of Farm-to-Market (FM) 2514 (Parker Road) from east of Lavon Parkway to Brown Street in the City of Wylie and the Town of St. Paul, and unincorporated areas in Collin County, Texas. 

Description:

The proposed project would reconstruct and widen an existing two-lane roadway to a four-lane (ultimately six-lane) urban divided highway, a 14-foot outside shared-use lane with a 2-foot curb offset and an 11-foot inside lane with a 1-foot curb offset in each direction, with a 44-foot raised center median. The left-turn lane at median openings would be 11 feet wide, and the median width would be reduced accordingly. This configuration would accommodate the future expansion of one additional 11-foot inside lane in each direction. Thus, the future median width would be reduced to 22 feet. Along both sides of the roadway, 5-foot-wide concrete sidewalks would be installed, offset from the concrete curb by 3 feet. The proposed ROW width ranges from approximately 72 feet to 230 feet. The 72-foot typical section is at the project southern terminus transitioning to the existing section south of Brown Street. This short section consists of one 11-foot and one 14-foot lane in each direction with sidewalks and no median.
