Purpose TxDOT is conducting a feasibility study for potential improvements to FM 407 from US 81 / 287 to Bill Cook Road in Wise and Denton Counties, Texas.

The purpose of the feasibility study is to analyze potential roadway options to improve FM 407, including improving the existing alignment or utilizing new alignments.  Alignment options could require additional right-of-way to accomplish the FM 407 improvements.  The study proposals would potentially involve construction in wetlands and an action in a floodplain.

Accessibility The virtual public meeting and in-person option 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 meeting or in-person option, please contact the TxDOT Public Information Office at (214) 320-4480 no later than 4 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 26, 2023. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for the TxDOT to arrange.
