When:

Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2018
5 p.m. - 7 p.m.

Purpose:

The purpose of the open house is to gather public input on the proposed improvements to FM 734 (Parmer Lane) between RM 1431 and SH 45 North. The meeting will be an open house format 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 Oct. 10, 2018 to be a part of the official open house record.

Description:

The purpose of the proposed project is to reduce congestion and improve mobility for FM 734 by providing additional roadway capacity to meet future traffic demands due to population growth and increased traffic volumes. The proposed project would:

  • Expand FM 734 from four travel lanes to six travel lanes (three in each direction) within the existing right of way
  • Improve intersections with additional turn lanes where necessary
  • Provide sidewalks throughout the corridor and a dedicated bicycle/pedestrian path connecting Parmer Lane to the Brushy Creek Regional Trail

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 (512) 832- 7244 no later than Sept. 18, 2018. Please be aware that advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
