Notice of Availability of Final Environmental Assessment - AllianceTexas/Haslet Accessibility Improvement Project


Purpose:

This notice advises the public that a final environmental assessment (EA) is available for public review for the proposed AllianceTexas/Haslet Accessibility Improvement Project from approximately 3,500 feet west of FM 156 to I-35W in Tarrant County, Texas.

Description:

The proposed AllianceTexas/Haslet Accessibility project would involve the reconstruction and widening of Avondale-Haslet Road to a four-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 (four-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 six-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. No residential or non-residential structures would be displaced. The project would encroach on wetlands and includes installing multiple bridge class culverts and bridges across floodplains and intermittent and ephemeral streams.

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.
