Purpose:

The purpose of the public hearing is to present the planned improvements and solicit public comments on the draft environmental assessment and the proposed roadway improvements to US 380 from State Loop (SL) 288 to west of County Road (CR) 26 at the Denton/Collin County line in Denton County, Texas. 

Description:

The proposed project would reconstruct and widen approximately 14.6 miles of existing US 380 from a four-lane undivided rural roadway to a six-lane divided urban roadway from the US 377-US 380 intersection to the Denton County line. The improved roadway would include two 11- to 12-foot wide inside travel lanes and one 14-foot wide outside shared-use lane (for bicycle accommodation) with raised median and curb and gutter in each direction. The existing roadway right of way width ranges from 120 to 330 feet. The proposed right of way width would vary between 127 and 330 feet, except at grade separated intersections. New grade separations are planned at Legacy Drive, Teel Parkway, Navo Road, Farm-to-Market (FM) 423, and FM 720. Existing bridges at Little Elm Creek and Doe Branch would be widened. A minimum five-foot wide sidewalk would be located along the outer lanes of the roadway. The proposed sidewalks would meet Americans with Disability Act design criteria. The proposed project traverses the City of Denton, Town of Crossroads, City of Frisco, Town of Providence Village, Town of Little Elm, and the Town of Prosper. The proposed project would require approximately 27 acres of new right of way, 1.2 acres of temporary construction easements, and 0.8 acre of proposed drainage easements. Although additional right of way is required, no residential or non-residential structures would be displaced.
