The purpose of the hearing is to receive public comments on the proposed widening and realignment of FM 2483 and Prairie View Roads in Bell County. Displays will be available at 5:30 p.m., and the formal hearing will begin at 6 p.m. Comments must be received on or before Friday, May 12, 2017, to be part of the official hearing record.
The project proposes to improve Prairie View Road from Pea Ridge Road to State Highway (SH) 317. Prairie View Road would be widened to four lanes, including turn lanes, bicycle lanes, sidewalks, and a raised median in some areas. Prairie View Road would connect with Farm-to-Market (FM) 2483 at a new intersection at SH 317. FM 2483 would be realigned and widened from two lanes to four lanes from SH 317 west for a distance of approximately 0.5 mile.
The existing ROW width on FM 2483 is approximately 100 feet. Along FM 2483, no residential or commercial displacements would be needed. The Prairie View Road existing ROW width is approximately 50 feet and will be widened to 130 feet. Along Prairie View Road, six residential and two commercial displacements would be needed.
