Purpose:

TxDOT is hosting this public hearing to present proposed roadway improvements for FM 16, from 4 miles west of FM 849 (CR 481-E), east to US Highway 69 in Lindale, Smith County, Texas and to receive public comments on the proposed project.  Displays will be available for viewing from 5 - 7 p.m., with the formal hearing starting at 6 p.m. 

Description:

The proposed FM 16 facility would include the construction of a five-lane highway with two lanes in each direction and a continuous left-turn lane from US 69 to County Road (CR) 436, and a three-lane highway, with one lane in each direction and a continuous left-turn lane from CR 436 to the western terminus, 4 miles west of FM 849 (CR 481-E).  The proposed right of way (ROW) would vary between 80 and 365 feet in width and would cover approximately 68.1 acres. The design speed is 45 mph from US 69 to Toll 49, and 60 mph from Toll 49 to the western terminus, 4 miles west of FM 849 (CR 481-E). The proposed project would displace 16 single family residences, one active commercial business, and one vacant commercial structure.
