Purpose: TxDOT is advising the public of the availability of the finding of no significant impact statement for the proposed improvements to FM 1570 from SH 66 to US 380 in Hunt County.
Description: The proposed project would take place on a new location that would extend FM 1570 from the existing FM 1570/SH 66 intersection to US 380 southwest of Greenville. The proposed project would provide two 12-foot-wide travel lanes with 10-foot outside paved shoulders within an approximate 264-foot-wide right of way (ROW) with provision for future expansion to an ultimate four-lane divided highway. Also, construction would include a bridge over Block Branch. All intersections would be constructed at grade with provision for future grade separations over SH 66 and US 380.

Proposed FM 1570 would require approximately 70 acres of ROW. A small amount of required ROW is publicly owned, principally CR 2108, but almost all ROW would be acquired from nine land owners, seven of whom are individuals. Almost all required ROW is agricultural use. No residential or commercial displacements will be required.

Copies of the FONSI, the public hearing documentation, and the approved Environmental Assessment, for this project are available for public inspection and reproduction at the TxDOT Paris District Office, located at:
