Purpose:

Hidalgo County Precinct #4, in cooperation with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), will hold a public meeting to present the proposed widening of FM 1925 (Monte Cristo Road) from Wallace Road to FM 2061(McColl Road) in Hidalgo County, Texas.  TxDOT is the lead agency that will approve the environmental review of this project. 

The purpose of the meeting is to allow the public the opportunity to view the project schematic and provide comments on the proposed widening of FM 1925 (also known as Monte Cristo Road) from Wallace Road to FM 2061 (McColl Road) for a total of 5.2 miles. The purpose of the project is to improve safety and mobility, and provide pedestrian accommodations.  Comments must be received on or before May 16, 2019 to be a part of the official (meeting/open house/hearing) record.

Description:

The proposed project is divided into two sections for planning purposes. Section I, from Wallace Road to 10th Street, would widen FM 1925 to a 110-foot-wide urban roadway consisting of six 12-foot-wide travel lanes, one 16-foot-wide concrete raised median, two 10-foot-wide shoulders, and 6-foot-wide sidewalks on both sides of the roadway within a proposed 150-foot-wide Right-of-Way (ROW). Section II, from 10th Street to McColl Road, would widen FM 1925 to a 101-foot-wide urban roadway consisting of six 11.5-foot-wide travel lanes, one 16-foot-wide concrete raised median, two 8-foot-wide shoulders, and 6-foot-wide sidewalks on both sides of the roadway within a proposed 120-foot-wide ROW. Drainage would be provided by a proposed underground storm drain system. The proposed project would also include the realignment of the Mon-Mack intersection and the installation of two underground drainage pipes along Depot Road and Rooth Road. 

The proposed project would require approximately 37.2 acres of new ROW, 32.1 acres for Section I and 5.1 acres for Section II. No residential or business relocations are anticipated. ROW acquisition and the relocation process would be conducted according to Titles II and III of the Uniform Relocation Assistance Policy Act of 1970. Information about the benefits and services can be obtained at the Hidalgo County Pct. #4 office located at 1051 N. Doolittle Road, Edinburg, TX.
