Notice Affording Opportunity for a Public Hearing and Notice of Availability - FM 3083 from SH 105 to I-45


Purpose:

TxDOT is proposing to widen FM 3083 from SH 105 to Interstate I-45 in Montgomery County, Texas. This notice advises the public that TxDOT is affording an opportunity for a public hearing on the proposed project and the draft categorical exclusion is available for public review.

Description:

The proposed project would create a four-lane divided roadway with open ditches to convey stormwater between SH 105 and I-45. Five-foot wide sidewalks would be constructed on both sides of the roadway.

The existing FM 3083 right of way (ROW) width varies within the project limits, but typically ranges from 180 to 230 feet. No additional ROW would be required to construct the new roadway. The proposed improvements would potentially require approximately 8.0 acres of new ROW for the addition of three detention basins. Although additional ROW is required, no residential or non-residential structures would be displaced.

Any interested member of the public may request a public hearing covering the social, economic and environmental effects of the proposed location and design for this project. Requests for a public hearing must be submitted in writing on or before June 21, 2018, to:

TxDOT Houston District Office
Director of Project Development
P.O. Box 1386
Houston, Texas 77251-1386

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.
