Notice of Availability - Finding of No Significant Impact - SH 211


Purpose:

This notice advises the public that a final environmental assessment (EA) is available for public review and TxDOT has issued a finding of no significant impact (FONSI) for the proposed SH 211 project from FM 1957 to FM 471 in Bexar and Medina Counties, Texas.

Description:

The proposed SH 211 project includes construction of a new 7.6 miles two-lane rural arterial roadway on new location within a typical 150-foot right-of-way connecting the existing sections of SH 211 from FM 471 (Culebra Road) to FM 1957 (Potranco Road). The project occurs within the ETJ of San Antonio along the Bexar/Medina County line. No residential or commercial displacements are proposed.

To avoid noise impacts that may result from future development adjacent to a proposed highway project, a traffic noise analysis is included in the final EA, which includes predicted noise impact contours for currently undeveloped areas. These impact contours are intended as a general guide to assist local planning officials and developers plan and construct new activities in locations that would not result in traffic noise impacts. On the date of approval/clearance of an EA/FONSI (including the traffic noise analysis) for a proposed highway project, TxDOT is no longer responsible for providing noise abatement for new development.

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 the Federal Highway Administration and TxDOT.
