The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is proposing to widen State Highway (SH) 205 from United States Highway (US) 80 in Terrell to the junction of SH 205/John King Boulevard (South Goliad Street) in Kaufman and Rockwall counties, Texas. This notice advises the public that a draft Environmental Assessment (EA) is available for public review and that TxDOT will be conducting a public hearing on the proposed project. The hearing will be held on Thursday, October 18, 2018 at Chisholm Baptist Church located at 1388 South SH 205, Rockwall, Texas 75032. Displays will be available for viewing at 6:00 p.m. with the formal hearing starting at 7:00 p.m. The purpose of the hearing is to present the planned improvements and to receive public comment on the proposed project.

The proposed project would widen SH 205 from US 80 in Terrell to the junction of SH 205/John King Boulevard (South Goliad Street), a distance of approximately 13.07 miles, within the cities of Rockwall, McLendon-Chisholm and Terrell, Texas. Phased construction of SH 205 includes interim and ultimate improvements. Interim improvements would include constructing a four-lane urban roadway with an inside 12-foot wide travel lane (one in each direction) and an outside 14-foot wide travel lane (one in each direction) for shared use by bicycles and vehicles. Five-foot wide sidewalks would be constructed on each side of SH 205 throughout the proposed project limits. A 42-foot wide median would divide the northbound and southbound lanes. In the ultimate phase of construction, inside widening would occur within the 42-foot median and an additional 12-foot wide lane would be constructed in each direction with an 18-foot median remaining.
