Virtual Public Hearing – FM 1641 from FM 548 to FM 148 and FM 548 from FM 1641 to US 80

Where:

The virtual public hearing will be posted at the date and time below.

When:

Tuesday, June 30, 2020 at 6:00 p.m.
The virtual public hearing will be available through Wednesday, July 15, 2020. All comments must be received on or before Wednesday, July 15, 2020, to be a part of the official hearing record.

Purpose:

The purpose of the virtual public hearing is to present the proposed improvements to FM 1641 from FM 548 to FM 148 and FM 548 from FM 1641 to US 80 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.

Description:

The FM 1641 reconstruction project includes widening approximately 0.2 miles of FM 548 and approximately 5.4 miles of FM 1641. The existing FM 548 is a 4-lane urban roadway, and the existing FM 1641 is a rural 2-lane roadway.  Both roadways would be reconstructed to an urban 4-lane (ultimate 6-lane) section with turn lanes. A raised median would be added, and 14-foot wide shared-use lanes to accommodate bicycles and 6-foot wide sidewalks would be added in each direction.

The existing right of way (ROW) width is approximately 90 feet wide with the proposed project ROW width being approximately 130 feet wide. Approximately 20.3 acres of new ROW and 3.0 acres of permanent drainage easements would be required to accommodate the proposed improvements.

If you have a special communication accommodation or need for an interpreter, a request can be made. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can also be made to accommodate most needs. Please call (214) 320-4480 no later than Friday, June 26, 2020. Please be aware that advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange
