TxDOT is proposing improvements to RM 2871 (Longview Avenue/Chapin School Road) from I-30 to US 377 in Tarrant County. The purpose of the meeting is to offer an opportunity to discuss and make comments on the proposed improvements. The public meeting will be an open house format with no formal presentation. Maps and exhibits of the proposed improvements will be displayed at the public meeting. Written comments must be submitted on or before Friday, April 3, 2020, to be part of the official record.
The proposed improvements to RM 2871 include reconstructing and widening the existing roadway to a 4-lane divided urban roadway with a six-foot to 18-foot wide raised-curb median from US 377 in the City of Benbrook north to I-30 in the City of Fort Worth for approximately 5.12 miles along RM 2871. Additional improvements being evaluated include an overpass bridge of RM 2871 over the Union Pacific Railroad and Aledo Road. The proposed project would enhance safety and mobility. The project would also include additional left and right turn bays, improvements to existing intersections and bicycle and pedestrian accommodations on both sides of RM 2871.
The project alternatives would require approximately one to 16 acres of additional right-of-way which would depend on the selected alternative.
TxDOT makes every reasonable effort to accommodate the needs of the public. The public meeting will be in English. 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 (817) 370-6817 at least two working days prior to the meeting. Please be aware that advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time to arrange.
