Purpose:

This notice advises the public that a final environmental assessment (EA) for the proposed FM 1110 project from I-10 to SH 20 in El Paso County, Texas, is available for public review until October 12, 2018.

Description:

The proposed FM 1110 project would consist of widening and realignment of FM 1110 to provide direct connection between I-10 and SH 20 near the Town of Clint and the City of San Elizario. The proposed FM 1110 roadway would be functionally classified as an Urban Minor Arterial (4-lane, divided) with a design speed of 45 miles per hour. The proposed project would include drainage improvements, intersection improvements, a bridge crossing over the floodplain between Salatral Lateral and FM 76, and an overpass at the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) crossing. Drainage improvements, including seven retention basins, are proposed for the project. Six-foot wide sidewalks within 20-foot wide borders would be constructed on each side of FM 1110 between the face of curb and proposed right-of-way. In addition, 5-foot wide bicycle lanes would be constructed on both sides of the roadway. The proposed project would require approximately 40 acres of additional right-of-way for construction of the new location section and retention basin construction; and 0.53 acres of temporary construction easements, for access improvements. To provide a grade-separated crossing at the UPRR crossing, a license agreement of approximately 0.63 acre would be required. The project would also require license agreements for approximately 1.21 acres from the El Paso County Water Improvement District No. 1 because the project would cross the Salatral Lateral, Mesa Drain, and the Clint Lateral. The proposed project would be constructed in phases. Phase I would consist of the widening from 2 lanes to 4 lanes between I-10 and FM 76 and Phase II would consist of the realignment by constructing a new location section between FM 76 and SH 20.
