|Purpose||The purpose of this virtual public hearing is to receive public comments on the proposed widening of FM 2964 from SH 110 to FM 346 in Smith County, Texas. This notice also advises the public that a draft environmental assessment is available for public review below.|
From SH 110 at Thistle Drive in Tyler, south to FM 346 near Whitehouse, the proposed improvements to FM 2964 include widening the existing two-lane roadway to a four-lane curb-and-gutter roadway with a continuous two-way left-turn lane. Improvements include a shared-use path to accommodate bicycles and pedestrians. The project proposes to realign the FM 2964 intersection with Shiloh Road approximately 1,200 feet west of its current location, at Thistle Drive. The project also proposes to realign the intersection of FM 2964 and Barbee Road. The length of the project is approximately 5.4 miles and proposed right of way varies from 100 feet to 225 feet throughout the project.
The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional ROW and potentially displace 52 residences and six non-residential structures. Relocation assistance is available for displaced persons and businesses. Information about the TxDOT Relocation Assistance Program and services and benefits for those displaced and other affected property owners, as well as information about the tentative schedule for ROW acquisition and construction, can be obtained from the Tyler District Office by calling 903-510-9100.
If you have any general questions or concerns regarding the proposed project, virtual hearing or in-person option, please contact Dylan McCord at 903-510-9116 or by email as described in the Notice.
