Notice of Availability - FM 2493 Finding of No Significant Impact


Purpose: TxDOT is advising the public of the availability of the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the proposed improvements to FM 2493 in Smith County, from FM 2813 in Gresham to FM 346 in Flint.

To avoid noise impacts that may result from future development adjacent to a proposed highway project, a traffic noise analysis is included in the Environmental Assessment (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.

It is important to note that on the date of approval/clearance of an environmental document (including the traffic noise analysis) for a proposed highway project, TxDOT is no longer responsible for providing noise abatement for new development.
   
Description: Copies of the FONSI, approved EA, public hearing transcript, public hearing summary and analysis, responses to public comments and certification of public involvement for this project are available for public inspection and reproduction at:
