Date: Sept. 20, 2017


DENTON COUNTY – The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will hold a public meeting for proposed improvements to FM 1830 from FM 407 to US 377 in Denton County, a distance of approximately 5.4 miles. The meeting will be from 6 to 8 p.m., Tuesday, September 26 at Harpool Middle School, 9601 Stacee Lane in Lantana. TxDOT staff and project consultants will be available to answer questions about the project. The meeting will be in an informal ‘open house’ format.

The project would widen FM 1830 from a two-lane roadway to a four-lane roadway. Proposed improvements would include constructing inside 12-foot wide travel lanes (one in each direction) and outside 14-foot wide travel lanes (one in each direction) for shared use by bicycles and vehicles. Sidewalks would also be constructed on each side of FM 1830 throughout the project limits. Additional right of way would be required along existing FM 1830.

Maps showing the project location and preliminary design will be displayed.

The cost of the project is approximately $54 million and it is in the feasibility study planning stage.
