The original Federal Highway Administration-approved design included widening of FM 518 from four to six lanes between SH 288 and SH 35 for a total distance of approximately 6.0 miles. The original design also included the addition of a raised median, along with curb and gutter, throughout the project limits. The proposed changes that will be presented at this public meeting are between FM 865 (Cullen Boulevard) and SH 35 and consist of reducing the right-of-way footprint, adjusting the roadway alignment to avoid and minimize impacts, and reducing the lane widths from 12-feet to 11-feet in order to accommodate the addition of an off-street bicycle/pedestrian facility. The bicycle/pedestrian facility would be a 10-foot-wide sidepath along the south side of FM 518. The median and curb and gutter design remain the same.
Environmental documentation, maps and drawings showing the project location and design, tentative construction schedules, and other information regarding the proposed project are on file and available for inspection Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at TxDOT Brazoria Area Office located at 18671 FM 523, Angleton, TX 77515.
