Purpose TxDOT is proposing to widen and reconstruct FM 1387 from North Midlothian Parkway to FM 664 in Ellis County, Texas.
Description

The proposed project consists of the reconstruction, realigning, and widening of FM 1387 from North Midlothian Parkway to FM 664 for approximately 5.8 miles. Improvements would include:

  • Expansion of the existing two-lane rural roadway to a four-lane urban roadway (ultimate six-lanes)
  • Addition of a raised median to provide additional capacity and improve safety
  • Addition of turn lanes, where applicable, will be located at side streets and intersections
  • 11-foot to 12-foot-wide travel lanes depending on right-of-way (ROW) restrictions
  • A 10-foot-wide shared-use path on the north side
  • A 5-foot sidewalk on the south side of the roadway

The proposed ROW width will range from 120 feet to 300 feet wide. The proposed project passes through the eastern portion of the City of Midlothian and Ellis County, Texas. The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional right of way and potentially displace ten residences along the FM 1387 corridor west of Longbranch Road.

Accessibility

The virtual and in-person public meeting 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 or in-person meeting, please contact the TxDOT Dallas District Public Information Office, at (214) 320-4480 no later than 4 p.m., Thursday, March 23, 2023.
