When:

Tuesday, March 5, 2019
6 - 8 p.m.

Purpose:

The purpose of the meeting is to present the planned improvements and solicit public comments on the proposed roadway improvements to FM 664 from US 287 to Westmoreland Road, in Ellis 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 Wednesday, March 20, 2019, to be a part of the official record.

Description:

The proposed project consists of the reconstruction, realigning, and widening of FM 664 from US 287 in Waxahachie to Westmoreland Road in Ovilla, TX. Improvements would include the expansion of the current 2-lane rural roadway to a 4-lane urban roadway (ultimate 6-lanes) with a raised median. Improvements would consist of 12-foot-wide travel lanes, and 14-foot-wide outside shared-use lanes, 5-foot sidewalks in both directions, separated by a raised median. Other improvements would include eliminating 90-degree turns along FM 664 between FM 1387 and Marshall Road. The existing right-of-way (ROW) width is 100 feet and will increase with the proposed project to the typical 150-foot ROW footprint. The proposed project is anticipated to require approximately 80 acres of additional ROW to widen the roadway, based on this preliminary level of design.

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 (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.
