Open House: 6 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Public Hearing: 7 p.m.

Purpose:

TxDOT proposes to reconstruct and widen FM 156 (Blue Mound Road) extending from US 81/US 287 to McLeroy Boulevard/Watauga Road in Tarrant County, Texas.

Description:

The purpose of the proposed project is to improve safety and mobility for the traveling public including pedestrians and bicyclists. FM 156 is an existing two-lane undivided roadway with one 12-foot lane in each direction and variable width shoulders. The existing typical right of way width is 120 feet. The proposed improvements would reconstruct the facility to four lanes with a curbed median and left-turn bays at major intersections. The facility would include a 14-foot shared outside lane and a 12-foot inside lane, each direction, within curb and gutter. A ten-foot wide sidewalk would be included on the southbound side and a six-foot wide sidewalk would be included along the northbound side.  

Special accommodations: TxDOT makes every reasonable effort to accommodate the needs of the public. The meeting will be in English. If you have a special communication accommodation or need for an interpreter, a request can be made. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can also be made to accommodate most needs. Please call (817) 370-6610 at least five working days prior to the public hearing. Please be aware that advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.

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 Dec. 16, 2014, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT.

Comments must be received on or before Wednesday, June 13, 2018, to be a part of the official hearing record.
