|Purpose||TxDOT, in cooperation with the City of Joshua, is proposing to improve FM 917 from West of Avenue F to East of SH 174 in Johnson County, Texas.|
The proposed improvements to FM 917 include realigning and widening FM 917 in downtown Joshua, Texas extending from just west of Avenue F eastward to east of SH 174. The proposed project includes replacement of an at-grade Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) railroad crossing with a railroad grade separation (underpass) along with realigning and widening FM 917 from the existing two-lane roadway to a three-lane roadway with curb and gutter. The project would also include enhancements to accommodate bicycles and pedestrians. The purpose of the proposed project is to enhance safety and connectivity within the downtown Joshua area.
The proposed improvements would, subject to final design considerations, require additional right of way and potentially displace 15 residences and 1 non-residential structure.
|Accessibility||The virtual public meeting with in-person options will be conducted in English and Spanish. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the virtual public meeting or in-person options, please contact TxDOT Project Manager Thomas Marquardt, P.E. at 817-370-6772 no later than 4 p.m. Central Time, Thursday, August 4, 2022. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.|
|Memorandum of Understanding||The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried-out by TxDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 9, 2019, and executed by the Federal Highway Administration and TxDOT.|
