TxDOT is holding a public meeting to discuss the proposed improvements to the frontage road system along US 81/US 287 from north of Pioneer Road to south of Avondale Haslet Road in Wise and Tarrant Counties, Texas. The public meeting will be an open house format with no formal presentation. Written comments must be submitted on or before Nov. 22, 2019, to be part of the official record.


The proposed project includes the addition and reconstruction of frontage roads along US 81/US 287 to convert the existing frontage roads to a continuous one-way, two-lane design from north of Pioneer Road to south of Avondale Haslet Road, for a total distance of approximately 10 miles. The frontage road would include two travel lanes in each direction, left-turn lanes at cross streets, and would provide bicycle and pedestrian accommodations. South of Avondale Haslet Road, an additional mainlane would be added in each direction. The proposed project includes new grade-separated interchanges at County Road 4840, Ramhorn Hill Road, and Future Northstar Parkway, and new direct connectors at State Highway 114 East. The project includes operational improvements to existing cross streets, main lanes, ramps, and auxiliary lanes. The existing facility would be upgraded to meet current TxDOT design criteria. Additional right of way and denial of access at ramp locations would be necessary to accommodate the proposed improvements.
