Virtual Public Hearing and Draft Environmental Assessment Available for Public Review - IH 35W From Dale Earnhardt Way to South of the IH 35E/ IH 35W Interchange


The virtual public hearing will be held on Thursday, April 30, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. and will be available through Friday, May 15, 2020. All comments must be received on or before Friday, May 15, 2020.


The purpose of the virtual public hearing is to present the proposed IH 35W Frontage Road improvements and solicit public comments. The virtual public hearing will begin at 6:00PM. Materials will consist of a video presentation explaining the proposed project, which includes both audio and video components, along with other exhibits and materials for review. Formal comments may be provided by mail, email, or voicemail as described in the notice and on the virtual public hearing website.


The proposed project consists of the construction of the northbound and southbound frontage roads for IH 35W from Dale Earnhardt Way in the City of Fort Worth to south of the IH 35E/IH 35W interchange in the City of Denton, Texas; a distance of approximately 12.3 miles. The frontage roads would consist of one 12-foot wide inside travel lane, and one 14-foot wide outside shared-use lane with two-foot wide curb offsets, and a six-foot wide sidewalk in both directions. Other improvements would include changing the IH 35W ramp configuration from a conventional diamond to a reverse diamond (X ramp) and flipping the FM 1117 (Cross Timber Road), Old Justin Road, and John Paine Road/ Allred Road interchanges so that the IH 35W mainlanes cross over these streets.

The existing right-of-way (ROW) width ranges from 300 to 700 feet. The proposed ROW width, including the existing ROW width, would range from 690 to 1,160 feet. The proposed project would require approximately 95.43 acres of additional ROW and 2.47 acres of permanent drainage easements.  to accommodate the proposed improvements.
