Thursday, July 09, 2020




The virtual public hearing will be held on Thursday, July 9, 2020 at 6:00PM and will be available through Wednesday, July 29, 2020. All comments must be received on or before Wednesday, July 29, 2020. This will be a virtual public hearing via a pre-recorded video presentation. The in-person option will be held on Tuesday July 14, 2020 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.


The purpose of the virtual public hearing is to present the proposed FM 664 Road improvements and solicit public comments. The virtual public hearing 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. Formal comments may be provided by mail, email, or voicemail as described in the notice and on the virtual public hearing website.


The proposed project consists of the reconstruction, realigning, and widening of FM 664 from US 287 in Waxahachie to Westmoreland Road in Ovilla, TX. Improvements would include the expansion of the current 2-lane rural roadway to a 4-lane urban roadway (ultimate 6-lanes) with a raised median to provide additional capacity and improve safety. Improvements would consist of 12-foot wide travel lanes, 14-foot wide outside shared-use lanes, and 6-foot sidewalks with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) curb ramps in both directions. Other improvements would include eliminating 90-degree turns along FM 664 between FM 1387 and Marshall Road. The proposed project is anticipated to require 87.18 acres of additional right-of-way (ROW) and 0.61 acre of proposed easement.
