Proposed Improvements to SL 288 from IH 35W to IH 35 - Public Meeting

Thursday, March 28, 2019

CSJs: 2250-02-013 & 2250-02-014

Purpose:

The proposed SL 288 project includes the construction of a four-lane new location frontage road system from IH 35W south of Denton to IH 35 north of Denton, in Denton County, Texas, and is approximately 9.0 miles in length. The proposed project right-of-way (ROW) would include a median that would accommodate the future construction of an ultimate mainlane facility. Construction of the ultimate mainlane facility would be based on projected traffic and funding and would require additional environmental analysis prior to construction.

Description:

The new location SL 288 frontage road system would include a northbound and southbound frontage road facility. For rural areas, the facility would consist of two travel lanes (one 12-ft. wide lane and one 14-ft. wide lane for bicycle accommodation) and 8-ft. wide inside and outside shoulders in each direction, with open ditch drainage. For urbanized areas, the facility would consist of two travel lanes (one 12-ft. wide lane and one 14-ft. wide lane for bicycle accommodation) in each direction, with curb and gutter drainage. The facility would also include 6-ft. wide sidewalks along both sides of the road throughout the project limits. The proposed project ROW would include a median (variable width) that would accommodate the future construction of an ultimate mainlane facility. Approximately 400 acres of new ROW would be needed to accommodate the project, based on the preliminary schematic.
