Purpose:

To present the proposed reconstruction and widening of FM 455 from west of FM 2450 to east of Marion Road in Denton County, TX.  

Description:

The proposed project includes the reconstruction and widening of FM 455 from west of FM 2450 to east of Marion Road, a distance of 5.53 miles, in the City of Sanger, Denton County, TX. Proposed improvements would involve the expansion from a two-lane rural highway to a four-lane urban highway (four through lanes with a center two-way left turn lane [CTWLTL]). Expansion would consist of one 12-foot wide travel lane and one 14-foot wide outside shared‑use lane with 1.5-foot outside curb offsets in each direction with a 17-foot wide CTWLTL. In the vicinity of I-35, the roadway would include a zero to nine-foot wide raised central median on each side of I-35. Each raised central median would be preceded by an 11 to 17-foot wide taper from the flush median section (CTWLTL) to the raised central median section. Five to eight-foot wide sidewalks would be located along the outside of both the eastbound and westbound lanes. The proposed sidewalks would meet Americans with Disabilities design criteria. The existing right of way (ROW) width varies from 50 to 170 feet wide with a usual ROW width of 90 feet. The proposed ROW width varies from 104 to 225 feet wide with a usual ROW width of 130 feet. Approximately 38.5 acres of new ROW and 2.1 acres of easements would be acquired.
