Purpose:

The purpose of the Open House is to provide updates on the current status of the I-35 Improvement Project in Valley View, TX. The purpose of this meeting will be to present to the public and collect comments on the proposed changes in the realignment of the BNSF rail line within the Valley View section of the IH 35 Improvement Project since the February 2015 Open House.  In addition, we will be presenting and collecting comments on the proposed changes in access at 3rd Street in Valley View, Texas. The Open House will use a come-and-go format; no formal presentation will be given so citizens can attend at their convenience. 

Description:

TxDOT is planning improvements for the widening of I-35 from FM 3002 in Cooke County, Texas to Rogers Road/Mile Marker 3 in Love County, Okla., to update the roadway to current design standards and provide congestion relief for expected future traffic increases.  These improvements will require the relocation of a portion of the BNSF rail line within the City of Valley View, Texas.

As part of the planning process, TxDOT is conducting an environmental assessment (EA) for the proposed widening and realignment of IH-35 from the south Cooke County line to Rogers Road/Mile Marker 3 in Love County, Oklahoma. An EA is a report that documents the existing social, economic and environmental conditions, assesses effects of the proposed alternative and identifies potential mitigation. The EA will also evaluate the effects of a no-build alternative.

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 (940) 720-7733 at least three 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 Dec. 16, 2014, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT.
