Notice of Availability - Dicker Road Finding of No Significant Impact


Purpose: This notice is to advise the public that the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the Build Alternative of the widening of Dicker Road from Spur 115 (23rd Street) to FM 2061 (South Jackson Road).
   
Description: The proposed project includes:
  • Two lanes with roadside ditches to a curb and gutter section
  • Two 12-foot-wide travel lanes
  • Two 14-foot-wide outside shared-use lanes
  • 14-foot-wide continuous left-turn lane
In order to avoid noise impacts that may result from future development adjacent to a proposed highway project, a traffic noise analysis is included in the Environmental Assessment (EA), which includes predicted noise impact contours for currently undeveloped areas. These impact contours are intended as a general guide to assist local planning officials and developers plan and construct new activities in locations that would not result in traffic noise impacts.

It is important to note that TxDOT is no longer responsible for providing noise abatement for new development on the date of approval and/or clearance of an environmental document, including the traffic noise analysis, for a proposed highway project.

Copies of the FONSI, approved EA, and Opportunity for Public Hearing documentation for this project are available for public inspection and reproduction Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the following locations:
