The in-person meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. and will be in an open house format where the public may come and go at their convenience. Staff will be available to answer questions and take comments.

Purpose The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) in coordination with Denton County are proposing improvements to State Loop (SL) 288, from east of Interstate 35 (I-35) to United States Highway (US) 380 in Denton County, Texas. This notice advises the public that TxDOT will be conducting an online virtual public meeting on the proposed project with an in-person option.
Description

The proposed improvements include reconstructing and widening the SL 288 mainlanes from four to six lanes and constructing frontage roads, two lanes in each direction. The proposed improvements also include the construction of new U-turns at Kings Road along SL 288, as well as adding mainlanes, frontage roads and grade-separated intersections between SL 288 and US 380 in Denton County. A 10-foot shared-use path will be added on the north side of the project and a 6-foot sidewalk will be added on the south side. The project is approximately 8 miles in length. The existing right of way is approximately 250 feet wide and the proposed right of way ranges between 350 and 400 feet.

The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional right of way and potentially displace residences and non-residential structures. Relocation assistance is available for displaced persons and businesses. Information about the TxDOT Relocation Assistance Program and services and benefits for those displaced and other affected property owners, as well as information about the tentative schedule for right-of-way acquisition and construction, can be obtained from the TxDOT district office by calling (214) 320-6675.

The proposed project would involve construction in wetlands and an action in a floodplain.

Any environmental documentation or studies, maps and drawings showing the project location and design, tentative construction schedules, and other information regarding the proposed project are on file and available for inspection Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the TxDOT Dallas District Office, 4777 East U.S. Highway 80, Mesquite, TX 75150. Project materials are also available online at the project website. These materials will also be available in hard copy form for review at the in-person option.

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 Public Information Office at (214) 320-4480, TxDOT Dallas District, no later than 4 p.m. Friday, July 21, 2023. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
