|Purpose||The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is proposing to widen US 75 from Collin County Line to FM 1417 in Grayson County, Texas. This notice is affording an opportunity to comment as part of the environmental review process for this project. If you are a property owner, you are receiving this notice because records indicate that you own property that (1) would be acquired (in part or in whole) for this project, or (2) is adjacent to the project. This notice and opportunity to comment is also being provided to affected local governments and public officials.|
The purpose of the project is to add capacity, improve traffic operations by converting frontage roads from two-way to one-way operation, provide frontage road turn around opportunities, and ramp improvements along US 75. The proposed project is 14 miles from Collin County Line to FM 1417 and widens US 75 from two mainlanes to three mainlanes in each direction. The proposed project consists of three 12-foot-wide mainlanes with 10-foot to 11-foot-wide inside shoulders and 10-foot-wide outside shoulders in each direction separated by a two-foot-wide concrete traffic barrier. The proposed project converts frontage roads from two-way (where applicable) to one-way operation and retains existing widths (two 10-foot-wide travel lanes). The proposed project reconstructs or modifies existing ramps, where applicable, to support the mainlane widening and frontage road conversion. No additional Right-of-Way would be required for the proposed project. There are several adjacent existing drainage easements; however, no new easements are proposed.
Environmental documentation, studies, maps and drawings showing the project location along with design drawings, 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 the TxDOT Paris District Office, located at 1365 N. Main St., Paris, TX 75460 and the TxDOT Sherman Area Office, located at 3904 S. US 75, Sherman, TX 75090. You may call the Project Manager at 903-868-9253. Project materials are also available on this webpage.

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 review the project materials or submit information, please contact the TxDOT Paris District Public Information Office at 903-737-9213 no later than 4 p.m. CST, at least three business days before the date on which you would like to review the project materials or submit information.
