TxDOT is proposing improvements to I-35W from Seminary Drive to FM 3391/East Renfro Street, I-20 from Hemphill Street to Campus Drive, and SH 174 from I-35W to Northwest Newton Drive in Tarrant and Johnson counties, Texas. All comments must be received on or before Wednesday, May 12, 2021.
The proposed project is approximately 10 miles long and extends through portions of the cities of Fort Worth and Burleson located within Tarrant and Johnson counties, Texas. The purpose of the I-35W Segment 1 corridor study is to evaluate the reconstruction and widening of the existing I-35W corridor, to consider potential express lanes, and to evaluate improvements to the frontage roads, ramps and cross streets including the I-35W/I-20 and I-35W/SH 174 interchanges within the project limits.
TxDOT’s efforts for the corridor study will include: conceptual layouts; alternatives analysis; geometric design schematics and environmental studies supported with public involvement; a value engineering study; drainage studies; traffic counts and analysis; 3-D design visualization; surveying and mapping of existing right of way; and subsurface utility engineering.
The existing I-35W interstate highway consists of three 12-foot general purpose lanes and two 12-foot frontage road lanes in each direction. TxDOT evaluated the section of I-35W from I-20 to East Renfro Street and is proposing to reconstruct and widen the main lanes with five to six 12-foot main lanes in each direction. Proposed frontage roads would be reconstructed to include two to three 12-foot lanes and 10-foot shared-use paths in each direction. TxDOT is also evaluating improvements along I-20 which have not yet been identified. An existing corridor map of the study area limits along I-20 will be available for public input. All information and comments received from this virtual public meeting will be considered for incorporation into the study.
The virtual public meeting will be conducted in English and Spanish. 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.
