The virtual public meeting will be held on Thursday, September 10, 2020 at 6:00PM and will be available through Friday, September 25, 2020. All comments must be received on or before Friday, September 25, 2020. This will be a virtual public meeting via a pre-recorded video presentation (no in-person public meeting). 


The purpose of the virtual public meeting is to present the proposed FM 1387 Road improvements and solicit public comments. The virtual public meeting will begin at 6:00PM. Materials will consist of a video presentation explaining the proposed project, which includes both audio and video components, along with other exhibits and materials for review.

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is proposing to improve 5.7 miles of FM 1387 From North Midlothian Parkway to FM 664 in Ellis County, Texas.  Improvements would involve the expansion of the current two-lane rural roadway to an urban interim four-lane roadway to provide additional capacity and improve safety. The proposed improvements include one 12-foot-wide travel lane and one 14-foot-wide outside shared-use lane in each direction, five-foot sidewalks in each direction, a variable width median to accommodate an additional future lane in each direction, and turn lanes, where applicable at side streets and intersections along the corridor. From Longbranch Road to FM 664, a North and South alternative alignment are under consideration.
