When:

Tuesday, March 7, 2017
5 p.m. - 7 p.m.

Purpose:

TxDOT invites interested citizens to come review updated plans for the proposed widening of FM 2493 from FM 346 in Flint to US 69 in Bullard. Based on feedback received during a public meeting last spring, TxDOT staff has determined a preferred alternative. The public can review the design, ask questions and provide comments during this come-and-go open house-style meeting. There will not be a formal presentation, but project team members will be available to answer questions.

Description:

TxDOT is developing plans for improvements to FM 2493 from FM 346 in Flint to US 69 south of Bullard. These improvements will help ease congestion and improve safety through this area. Enhancements include:
  • Widening from a two-lane road to a four-lane divided highway with curb and gutter
  • Adding a continuous center left-turn lane to provide additional safety for drivers
  • Incorporating sidewalks and bicycle lanes for pedestrians and cyclists respectively

The project would require the acquisition of additional right of way.

Special accommodations: TxDOT makes every reasonable effort to accommodate the needs of the public. The open house will be in English. If you have a special communication accommodation or need for an interpreter, a request can be made. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can also be made to accommodate most needs. Please call (903) 510-9100 or email at least five working days prior to the meeting. Please be aware that advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.

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.
