FM 2478 from SH 121 to Stonebridge Drive - Public Hearing

Thursday, May 15, 2014

CSJ: 2351-01-020

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will conduct a Public Hearing on Thursday, May 15th, 2014 for the proposed improvements to FM 2478, locally known as Custer Road, in Collin County, Texas.

The purpose of the Public Hearing is to present the anticipated social, economic and environmental effects of the proposed project. The Public Hearing will be held at the George A. Purefoy Municipal Center located at 6101 Frisco Square Blvd. Frisco, Texas 75034. Prior to the Public Hearing, an Open House will be held from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM to allow for questions and review of project exhibits. TxDOT and City of Frisco Staff will be available to answer questions during the Open House. The formal Public Hearing presentation will begin at 7:00 p.m. followed by a public comment period.

The proposed improvements would consist of widening the existing FM 2478 from a four-lane, divided, urban roadway to a six-lane divided, urban roadway for a distance of approximately 3 miles. The proposed project would utilize the existing median to add an 11-foot wide inside lane in each direction and incorporate a 14-foot wide outside
shared use lane in each direction to accommodate bicyclists. The curb and gutter roadway would also include 11-foot wide left turn lanes at designated locations and 5-foot wide sidewalks on both sides of FM 2478 throughout the length of the project. The intersections of FM 2478 at Custer Bridges/McKinney Towne Crossing, Rolater Road/Collin McKinney Parkway, Stacy Road/FM 3537, and Stonebridge Drive would remain signalized. Crosswalks would be constructed at these signalized locations to accommodate pedestrians and bicyclists, and to ensure the project complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The proposed project would also include the expansion of an existing bridge at the tributary to Rowlett Creek crossing. No additional ROW or easements are required for the construction of the proposed project. The approximately 120-foot wide existing ROW is sufficient to accommodate the proposed project; therefore, no residential or commercial displacements would be required.
