To present the planned improvements and solicit public comments on the proposed roadway improvements to to FM 1173 from FM 156 to I-35 in Denton 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.


The project proposes to widen a distance of 3.6 miles of FM 1173 from FM 156 to I-35 in Denton 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, and sidewalks located along the outside of both the eastbound and westbound lanes. The existing right of way (ROW) width is 80 feet and will increase with the proposed project.  The proposed ROW is anticipated to acquire approximately 43 acres to expand the roadway, based on this preliminary level of design.

The meeting will be conducted in English. Persons interested in attending the meeting who have special communication or accommodation needs, such the need for an interpreter, are encouraged to contact the TxDOT Dallas District Public Information Office at (214) 320-4480. Requests should be made at least two days prior to the meeting. Every reasonable effort will be made to accommodate these needs.

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 FHWA and TxDOT.
