Notice of Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) and Final Environmental Assessment for Public Review - RM 620 from SH 71 to Hudson Bend Road
This notice advises the public that a final environmental assessment (EA) is available for public review, and TxDOT has issued a finding of no significant impact (FONSI) for the proposed RM 620 from SH 71 to Hudson Bend Road in Travis County, Texas.
The RM 620 project proposed improvements from SH 71 to Hudson Bend Road.
The project includes:
- Widening the existing four-lane divided to a six-lane divided urban roadway
- Adding raised medians
- Adding add a continuous shared-use path along both sides of the road
To avoid noise impacts that may result from future development adjacent to a proposed highway project, a traffic noise analysis is included in the final 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.
Memorandum of Understanding:
The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried-out by TxDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 9, 2019, and executed by the Federal Highway Administration and TxDOT.
