Purpose:

TxDOT will conduct a public hearing to present and receive comments on its preferred alternative and draft environmental assessment (EA) for FM 2206. The project limits extend from SH 42 to SL 281 in Gregg County. Staff will be available to answer questions prior to a formal presentation at 6 p.m.

TxDOT held the first public meeting on Oct. 22, 2014, and presented three alignment alternatives. After evaluating the public input received, TxDOT provided its recommended alternative at a second meeting on Aug. 18, 2015.

Description:

The proposed work includes widening the existing two-lane pavement to four lanes with a flush median. In the urban area, the proposed section includes four 12-foot vehicle lanes (two in each direction), one 16-foot continuous two-way left-turn lane plus 2-foot curb and gutter offsets. Additional features include a 10-foot multi-use path on the north side of FM 2206 and 5-foot sidewalk on the south. The urban section extends from Fisher Road east to SL 281 with a design speed of 45 mph. The rural section consists of four 12-foot vehicle lanes (two in each direction), one 16-foot continuous two-way left-turn lane and two 10-foot shoulders. The rural section extends from SH 42 east to Fisher Road with a design speed of 60 mph. The existing right of way (ROW) varies within the project from 80 to 220 feet. The proposed ROW varies from 110 to 500 feet. The total project length is 3.7 miles.
