This notice advises the public that TxDOT Dallas District has issued a finding of no significant impact (FONSI) for the proposed FM 664 project from IH 35E in Red Oak to IH 45 south of Ferris, in Ellis County, Texas.
The proposed FM 664 project improvements would consist of reconstruct and widening the existing FM 664 from a two/four-lane undivided rural roadway to a six-lane rural, curb and gutter divided facility with a raised median. A 2.5-mile bypass south of the City of Ferris would be constructed (zero to six-lane urban roadway) on new location to connect to a new interchange at IH 45. Major interchanges are proposed at IH 35 on the western terminus and at IH 45 on the eastern terminus. The existing FM 664 ROW width is approximately 100 feet. The FM 664 ROW would be widened to a varying width from 125 feet to 295 feet, the IH 35E ROW would vary between 300 feet to 324 feet; and the IH 45 ROW would vary between 350 feet to 462 feet. The project would be both within the existing right-of-way (ROW) and within new ROW.
The proposed project would require approximately 164 acres of additional ROW and 8 acres of permanent easements from adjacent properties. The proposed project would potentially displace 17 residential structures and 10 commercial properties.
