Where:

The virtual public meeting will be posted at the date below.

When:

Thursday, Sept. 10, 2020 
The pre-recorded presentation video (no in-person public meeting) will be available for comment by 6 p.m. 

Purpose:

The purpose of the virtual public meeting is to present the proposed FM 1387 Road improvements and solicit public comments. Materials will consist of a video presentation explaining the proposed project, which includes both audio and video components, along with other exhibits and materials for review. Comments may be provided by mail, email, or voicemail as described in the notice and on the virtual public meeting website. All comments must be received on or before Friday, Sept. 25, 2020.

Description:

TxDOT is proposing to improve 5.7 miles of FM 1387 From North Midlothian Parkway to FM 664 in Ellis County, Texas.  Improvements would involve the expansion of the current two-lane rural roadway to an urban interim four-lane roadway to provide additional capacity and improve safety. The proposed improvements include one 12-foot-wide travel lane and one 14-foot-wide outside shared-use lane in each direction, five-foot sidewalks in each direction, a variable width median to accommodate an additional future lane in each direction, and turn lanes, where applicable at side streets and intersections along the corridor. From Longbranch Road to FM 664, a North and South alternative alignment are under consideration.

Special Accommodations:

The virtual public meeting will be in English. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the virtual public meeting, please contact the TxDOT Dallas District Public Information Office at (214) 320-4480 no later than 4 p.m. central time on Monday September 7th, 2020. Please be aware that advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.  

Memorandum of Understanding:

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 9, 2019, and executed by the Federal Highway Administration and TxDOT.
