Purpose:

The purpose of the public hearing is to present planned improvements and to receive public input on the proposed reconstruction and widening of FM 2478 from US 380 to north of FM 1461 in Collin County, Texas. The City of McKinney is working in conjunction with TxDOT as the lead agency on this effort. This notice advises the public that draft environmental documentation/technical reports are available for public review. Displays will be available for viewing at 6 p.m. with the formal hearing starting at 7 p.m. Comments must be received on or before Wednesday, May 31, 2017 to be part of the official project record.

Description:

The proposed project includes the reconstruction and widening of FM 2478 from US 380 to north of FM 1461, a distance of 3.174 miles, in the City of McKinney, Collin County, TX. Construction of the proposed facility would be staged with the existing two-lane roadway first being expanded to four lanes. The proposed four-lane facility would consist of one 11-foot wide inside travel lane and one 14-foot wide outside travel lane in each direction with two-foot wide inside and outside curb offsets, 22-foot wide outside borders with five-foot wide sidewalks, and a 38-foot wide raised median. Expansion to the ultimate six-lane facility would occur at a later date. The ultimate six-lane facility would consist of two 11-foot wide inside travel lanes and one 14-foot wide outside travel lane in each direction with two-foot wide inside and outside curb offsets, 22-foot wide outside borders with five-foot wide sidewalks, and a 16-foot wide raised median. At various cross streets, the median would be reduced to accommodate a 10-foot-wide left-turn lane, or 10-foot and 12-foot wide dual left-turn lanes and a 12-foot-wide right-turn lane.

A 22-foot wide connector road would be constructed approximately 1,600 feet south of where the realigned section of FM 2478 connects with existing FM 1461. This road would connect the realigned section of FM 2478 to the existing FM 2478. A 10-foot wide left-turn lane would allow northbound motorists on the realigned section of FM 2478 to access the connector road and existing FM 2478. The connector road would be constructed as part of the proposed project.
