TxDOT is proposing to improve RM 2871 (Longview Avenue/Chapin School Road) from I-30 to US 377 in Tarrant County, Texas. This notice advises the public that TxDOT will be conducting an online virtual public meeting on the proposed project. All comments must be received on or before Aug. 21, 2020.
The proposed improvements to RM 2871 include reconstructing and widening the existing roadway to a four-lane divided urban roadway with a six-foot to 18-foot-wide raised-curb median from US 377 in the city of Benbrook north to I-30 in the city of Fort Worth for approximately 5.12 miles along RM 2871. Additional improvements being evaluated include an overpass bridge of RM 2871 over the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) and Aledo Road. The project would also include additional left- and right-turn bays, improvements to existing intersections, and bicycle and pedestrian accommodations on both sides of RM 2871.
The project alternatives would require approximately one to 16 acres of additional right of way; depending on the alternative selected. The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional right-of-way and potentially displace two commercial structures.
TxDOT makes every reasonable effort to accommodate the needs of the public. The public 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) 370-6817 by Aug. 4, 2020. Please be aware that advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time to arrange.
