Virtual Public Meeting for FM 1385 Improvements

Farm to Market Road (FM) 1385
From United States Highway (US) 380 to FM 455
Denton County, Texas
CSJ: 1315-01-030

September 15, 2020
 

 The FM 1385 reconstruction project includes widening an approximately 12-mile section of FM 1385 from US 380 to FM 455 in Denton County. The existing FM 1385 is a 2-lane rural highway. The proposed FM 1385 would be widened and reconstructed as a 6-lane divided urban roadway from US 380 to Mustang Road and a 4-lane interim (6-lane ultimate) divided urban roadway from Mustang Road to FM 455. A new location realignment of the central portion of FM 1385 at Mustang Road is proposed to directly connect FM 1385 to the north and south without requiring vehicles to travel along the Mustang Road portion of the existing FM 1385. Additionally, a new-location realignment of the southern portion of FM 1385 at Gee Road is also proposed. This would flatten out the existing “S” curve at Gee Road and improve mobility along FM 423 at the intersection with FM 1385.

This virtual meeting begins on September 15, 2020 and will remain available online through the comment period deadline of September 30, 2020. During this time, please view the video presentation and exhibits provided on this site to learn about the project, and provide your comments.
