Based on the preliminary engineering analysis, the preferred upgrade for the US 59/Farm to Market (FM) 2021 intersection is a US 59 underpass. FM 2021 would stay at roughly the same elevation, while US 59 would go under an FM 2021 bridge.
Right of Way
In order to meet the highest design standards, with minimal traffic impact, additional right of way would be required. Most new right of way would be acquired on the eastern side of US 59.
To improve safety and mobility, direct access from properties adjacent to US 59 would be impacted. No access would be allowed at intersection corners and critical ramp locations.
In November 2006, we initiated a study of safety and mobility at the intersection with consultant firm, Arcadis.
In May 2007, we presented results of the preliminary engineering analysis and the above preferred upgrade at a public meeting.
