Description:

The existing facility is a two-lane rural-type roadway with two 13-ft. lanes and 8-ft. shoulders. The existing right-of-way (ROW) width is approximately 120 feet. The proposed activities will consist of constructing four 11-ft. travel lanes and a 14-ft. center turn lane with 8-ft. shoulders for the first 0.9-miles then will taper down to two 12-ft. travel lanes and a 14-ft. center turn lane with 9-ft. shoulders for 0.2-miles. The project would taper down again to the original 2 lanes to the end of the project. No new ROW would be required for this project; therefore, there will be no displacements of residences or commercial businesses.

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 December 16, 2014, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT.
