Purpose:

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is proposing to construct discontinuous mainlanes and associated operational improvements along SH 170 from IH 35W to SH 114, for a distance of approximately 6 miles within the City of Fort Worth and the Town of Westlake in Tarrant and Denton Counties. Displays will be available for viewing at 6 p.m. with the formal hearing starting at 6:30 p.m. Comments must be received on or before Friday, Jan. 3, 2020 to be part of the official hearing record.

Description:

The purpose of the hearing is to present the planned improvements and to receive public comment on the proposed project. The proposed project would:

  • Construct four mainlanes (two in each direction) from IH 35W to Westport Parkway, from Park Vista Boulevard to Independence Parkway, and from the Union Pacific Railroad to the Denton County Line
  • Restripe the existing SH 170 mainlanes from two lanes (one in each direction) to four lanes (two in each direction) and ramp modifications between the Denton County Line and SH 114
  • Remove the Alta Vista Road, Haslet Roanoke Road and Roanoke Road crossings to enhance operating conditions, safety, and mobility

The project would not require additional right of way or easements and would not require any residential or commercial displacements or relocations.
