|In-person details||Thursday Sept. 29, 2022
5 - 8:00 p.m.
Pecan Grove Convention Center
405 North Las Vegas Trail
White Settlement, TX 76108
|Purpose||TxDOT and the cities of Fort Worth and White Settlement are proposing improvements to North Las Vegas Trail from Quebec Drive to I-820 in Tarrant County, Texas.|
The project proposes to:
This project is proposing to acquire approximately 0.234 acres of right-of-way and 0.859 acres of permanent easements.
The proposed project has the potential to impact John Griggs Park, managed by the City of White Settlement. This property is managed as a public park and recreation facility and is protected under Section 4(f) of the Department of Transportation Act of 1966. TxDOT will pursue a de minimis finding for any potential impacts at the park. Although additional right-of-way would be required, no residential or non-residential structures are anticipated to be displaced at this time.
Portions of the proposed project area are located within the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) 100-year floodplain, which is defined as the zone with a one percent chance of a flood event occurring in any given year. The hydraulic design for the proposed improvements would be in accordance with current TxDOT and Federal Highway Administration design policies and procedures. The project would not increase the base flood elevation without coordination and approval from the appropriate FEMA Floodplain Administrator. Approximately 0.21 acres of potential jurisdictional waters of the U.S. were identified within the project limits. Anticipated impacts would be authorized under U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Nationwide Permit 14.
