Haslet, TX 76052 (Map)

When:

Thursday, July 25, 2019
Formal Hearing 6:30 p.m.

Purpose:

The purpose of the public hearing is to present the proposed reconstruction of Avondale-Haslet Road from the Haslet city limits to FM 156, to extend Avondale-Haslet Road to I-35W, and extend Intermodal Parkway in Tarrant County, Texas. Displays will be available for viewing at 6:00 p.m. with the formal hearing starting at 6:30 p.m. Comments must be received on or before Friday, August 9, 2019, to be a part of the official hearing record.

Description:

The proposed project involves the reconstruction and widening of Avondale-Haslet Road to a 4-lane divided roadway from Haslet city limits (approximately 3,500 feet west of FM 156) to FM 156. Also, the project includes the extension of Avondale-Haslet Road (4-lane divided roadway) from FM 156 to I-35W (Proposed Haslet Parkway) and the extension of Intermodal Parkway southward to proposed Haslet Parkway. Intermodal Parkway would be a 6-lane divided roadway. The existing right of way width of Avondale-Haslet Road is approximately 50 feet, expanding to approximately 150 feet at the intersection of FM 156. New right of way will be acquired for the remaining portions of the project. Although additional right-of-way is required, no residential or non-residential structures would be displaced. Information concerning services and benefits available to affected property owners and information about the tentative schedule for right-of-way acquisition may be obtained from the City of Haslet. The proposed project would encroach on wetlands and includes installing multiple bridge class culverts and bridges across floodplains and intermittent and ephemeral streams.
