Purpose:

The purpose of the meeting is to present the planned improvements and solicit public comments on the proposed roadway improvements to FM 1515 from Masch Branch Street to Bonnie Brae Street, a distance of 2.1 miles, 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. Comments must be received on or before Friday, Sept. 13, 2019, to be a part of the official record.

Description:

The proposed improvements would consist of the reconstruction and widening of FM 1515 from Masch Branch Street to Bonnie Brae Street within the city of Denton in Denton County. FM 1515 is an undivided, minor arterial consisting of two 12-foot-wide lanes, 4-foot-wide shoulders and 12-foot-wide turning lanes within an existing right of way (ROW) of approximately 90 feet. The proposed improvements would include two 12-foot wide inside travel lanes and one 14-foot outside shared-use lane (for bicycle accommodation) with raised median and curb and gutter in each direction; and continuous 5-foot wide sidewalks along both sides of the road within a proposed ROW of approximately 140 feet. Additional improvements would include the replacement of the existing bridge structures over Dry Fork Hickory Creek, the Kansas City Southern Railroad and I-35W; and drainage, cross streets, driveways and frontage road improvements. The proposed project would also include a roundabout at the intersection with Masch Branch Street and left-turn lanes. Approximately 14 acres of ROW and 0.04 acre of easement would be required for the proposed project. No residential or non-residential displacements are anticipated.
