6 p.m. - 8 p.m.
The purpose of the meeting is to present the planned improvements and solicit public comments on the proposed roadway improvements to Bear Creek Road from Hampton Road to I-35E, a distance of 2.0 miles in Dallas County, Texas. The meeting will be an open house format with no formal presentation so the public may come and go at their convenience, and staff will be available to answer questions. Comments must be received on or before Friday, Nov. 16, 2018, to be a part of the official meeting record.
The proposed project would consist of the reconstruction and widening of Bear Creek Road from Hampton Road to I-35E within the cities of Glenn Heights and Lancaster in Dallas County. Bear Creek Road is an undivided, two-lane rural highway with 12-foot lanes within an existing right of way of approximately 80 feet. The proposed improvements would include one 12-foot wide inside travel lane and one 14-foot wide outside shared-use lane (for bicycle accommodation) with raised median and curb and gutter in each direction; and continuous sidewalks and a hike/bike trail within a proposed right-of-way width of approximately 112 feet. Additional improvements would include reconstruction of the I-35E/Bear Creek Road intersection and the replacement of the I-35E frontage road bridges. The proposed project will require additional right of way.
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 (214) 320-4480 at least two working days prior to the meeting. Please be aware that advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
