Thursday, Sept. 6, 2018
Open House: 5:30 p.m.
Public Hearing: 6:30 p.m.
The purpose of the public hearing is to gather public input on the proposed widening of FM 723 from Avenue D to FM 1093 in Fort Bend County, Texas. Engineering displays and environmental documents will be available for viewing at 5:30 p.m. The formal hearing starts at 6:30 p.m., and comments must be received on or before Sept. 21, 2018, to be a part of the official record.
Proposed improvements to FM 723 include the following:
- From Avenue D to south of the Brazos River bridge:
- Widen from two to four 11-foot lanes
- Add 5.5-foot sidewalks on both sides
- From north of the Brazos River bridge to FM 1093:
- Widen from two to four 12-foot lanes
- Add 6-foot sidewalks on both sides
- Add 12-foot shoulders
- Add an 18-foot raised median with intermittent median openings and left-turn lanes
- Brazos River bridge would not be modified
The proposed 9.23 mile project would require 100 acres of additional right of way. The proposed project would require one displacement of a utility building; however, the proposed project would not require the displacement or partial acquisition of any commercial or residential structure.
The hearing will be conducted in English. Persons who have special communication or accommodation needs are encouraged to contact TxDOT’s Public Information Offices at (713) 802-5076. Requests should be made at least five working days prior to the public hearing. Every reasonable effort will be made to accommodate these needs.
