Notice Affording Opportunity for Public Hearing - Trammel-Fresno Road


Purpose: The City of Missouri City, in cooperation with TxDOT, proposes to widen Trammel-Fresno Road from Vicksburg Boulevard to Fort Bend Parkway, in Fort Bend County. This is the second phase of widening Trammel-Fresno (which included widening existing two-lane Trammel-Fresno Road from Fort Bend Parkway to FM 521 in Fort Bend County).
   
Description: Proposed improvements include:
  • Adding one travel lane in each direction; the inside lanes would be 12 feet wide, and the outside lanes would be 14 feet wide with 1-foot curbs
  • Separating travel by a 14-foot-wide raised median
  • Constructing five-foot-wide concrete sidewalks along both sides of Trammel-Fresno Road
  • Adding curb and gutter drainage on both sides
  • Building an approximately 3.62-acre detention pond within city owned right of way (ROW) north of Trammel-Fresno Road and approximately 580-feet west of Fort Bend Parkway, adjacent to and south of Mustang Bayou
  • Regional waste water treatment plant
The purpose of this project is to improve connectivity, increase mobility and improve emergency vehicle access.

No additional ROW is required and no displacements would occur. Since the project area of Trammel-Fresno Road would be closed during construction, a temporary detour would route traffic around the site from the Trammel-Fresno Road intersections at Vicksburg Boulevard and Hurricane Lane southward to SH 6.

Any interested person may request that a public hearing be held covering the social, economic, and environmental effects of the project on or before Feb. 26, 2015. In the event a public hearing is requested, one would be scheduled and notices about the hearing date and location would be published in local papers and mailed to adjacent property owners and elected officials.

The environmental review, consultation and other actions required by applicable federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried out by TxDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated Dec. 16, 2014, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT.
