|Purpose||TxDOT is proposing to widen SH 5 from FM 2786 (Stacy Road) to south of FM 1378 (Country Club Road) in Collin County, Texas.|
The proposed project would consist of the reconstruction and widening of SH 5 from FM 2786 (Stacy Road) to south of FM 1378 (Country Club Road) within the town of Fairview in Collin County, Texas, and is approximately 1.99 miles in length.
The proposed project would reconstruct and widen existing SH 5 from a two-lane rural roadway to a four-lane urban divided curbed roadway (6-lane ultimate) from FM 2786 (Stacy Road) to Indian Springs Road and a four-lane divided curbed roadway from Indian Springs Road to south of FM 1378 (Country Club Road). The existing right-of-way width varies from 66 feet to 193 feet.
The proposed improvements would include:
The proposed right-of-way width would vary from 116 feet to 193 feet. The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional right of way.
The proposed project is anticipated to impact the following properties protected under Section 4(f) of the Department of Transportation Act of 1966: Town of Fairview’s Meadows Park. This recreational area is designated public property also subject to Chapter 26 of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Code. The proposed project would result in the acquisition of approximately 0.2 acres of additional right of way of park land for the construction of additional travel lanes and the construction of the shared-used path. TxDOT anticipates making a de minimis determination for this use under Section 4(f) of the Department of Transportation Act of 1966. Public comment on the effects of the proposed project on the activities, features or attributes of the Meadows Park and the greenspace may be submitted as described below.
The proposed project would involve construction in wetlands. The proposed project would involve an action in a floodplain.
