TxDOT Fort Worth District is proposing improvements to US 81/US 287 from north of Pioneer Road to south of Avondale Haslet Road, a distance of approximately 10 miles, in Wise and Tarrant Counties, Texas.
The proposed 10-mile project would reconstruct the US 81/US 287 main lanes from north of Pioneer Road to Avondale Haslet Road and reconstruct and add an additional main lane (three main lanes in each direction) south of Avondale-Haslet Road to the southern project limit. The proposed project also includes the construction, or reconstruction, and conversion of frontage roads to create a continuous one-way system within the project limits.
The frontage roads would include:
The proposed project also includes new overpasses at County Road 4840 and Future Northstar Parkway, a new underpass at Ramhorn Hill Road, and new direct connectors at State Highway 114 East. Additionally, the proposed project would include operational improvements to existing cross streets, ramps, and auxiliary lanes. The proposed project is not currently funded and may be constructed in phases through break-out projects based on funding availability.
The proposed project would require approximately 16 acres of new right of way; however, no residential or non-residential displacements are anticipated at this time.
The virtual public hearing and in-person option will be conducted in English. 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 need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the virtual public hearing or in-person option, please contact Matthew Berrones at (817) 370-3604 no later than 4 p.m. CT, Thursday, May 11, 2023. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
