TxDOT and Denton County are proposing the construction of a new location non-freeway roadway of FM 1171 from west of FM 156 to IH 35W in Denton County, Texas.


The proposed project would construct 3.5 miles of a new location non-freeway roadway of FM 1171. Construction within the project limits would be proposed as both urban and rural.  The proposed roadway would consist of widening a portion of John Wiley Road to a six-lane urban roadway (three lanes in each direction) and extending the six-lane roadway east beyond FM 156 to a proposed connection/extension to Harmonson Road. The proposed roadway would then become a divided four-lane rural roadway and extend approximately 1.9 miles to the east, where it would again become a six-lane urban roadway as it approaches I-35W. The entire proposed roadway would include:

  • Median-divided pavement
  • Turn lanes
  • Bridges
  • Culverts

The urban section of the proposed 6-lane curbed roadway would include:

  •  A 16-foot-wide median
  • Pedestrian/bicycle shared use path and sidewalk with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant ramps on both sides of the road.

The interim 4-lane rural roadway (6-lane ultimate) would include a 60-foot-wide median.

The proposed roadway would also include the widening and southward extension of Tally Boulevard, which intersects John Wiley Road, to four lanes that approach a traffic circle from the north and extends Harmonson Road as a four-lane urban roadway west from its intersection with FM 156 to the modern roundabout. These two roadways would be flanked with sidewalks with ADA-compliant ramps on both sides.

The proposed right of way (ROW) width would range from 116 to 300 feet. The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional ROW and potentially displace three non-residential structures.

Accessibility The public hearing will be conducted in English. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the virtual public hearing or in-person option, please contact the Dallas District Public Information Office at (214) 320-4480 no later than 4 p.m. Monday, April 3, 2023. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for the TxDOT to arrange.
