6 p.m. - 8 p.m.
The purpose of the meeting is to present the planned improvements and solicit public comments on the proposed improvements to FM 1173 from FM 156 (S. 1st street) to I-35, in Denton County, Texas. The meeting will be an open house format with no formal presentation so the public may come and go at their convenience, and staff will be available to answer questions. Comments must be received on or before Friday, Oct. 25, 2019, to be a part of the official record.
The proposed project consists of the reconstruction and widening of FM 1173 from FM 156 in Krum, to I-35 in Denton, TX. The improvements would include the expansion of the current two-lane rural roadway to a six-lane urban roadway. Expansion would consist of two 12-foot wide travel lane and one 14-foot wide outside shared-use lane in each direction, a proposed median, and sidewalks located along the outside of both the eastbound and westbound lanes. The existing right of way (ROW) width is 80 feet and will increase with the proposed project. The proposed ROW is anticipated to acquire approximately 43 acres to expand the roadway, with five potential displacements, based on this preliminary level of design.
