6 p.m. - 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 1461 from SH 289 to County Road 123, Collin 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.

Description:

The project proposes to widen a distance of 7.04 miles of FM 1461 from SH 289 to County Road 123 in Collin County, Texas. Expansion would consist of one 12-foot wide travel lane and one 14-foot wide outside shared-use lane in each direction, a proposed median to accommodate future ultimate six-lane facility, and sidewalks located along the outside of both the eastbound and westbound lanes. The existing right of way (ROW) width is 90 feet and will increase with the proposed project.  The proposed ROW is anticipated to acquire approximately 45 acres to expand the roadway, based on this preliminary level of design.

Special accommodations: TxDOT makes every reasonable effort to accommodate the needs of the public. The meeting 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.

The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried-out by TxDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 16, 2014, and executed by the Federal Highway Administration and TxDOT.

Comments must be received on or before Wednesday, May 9, 2018, to be a part of the official meeting record.
