Purpose TxDOT in coordination with Denton County are proposing improvements to SL 288, from east of  I-35 to east of Geesling Road on US 380 in Denton County, Texas.

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 and south sides of the project. The project is approximately seven 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 one non-residential structure. 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.

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, June 7, 2024. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
