The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), as the lead agency, is proposing to widen US Highway 67 (US 67) from Belt Line Road to Interstate 20 (I-20) in Dallas County, Texas. Pursuant to Texas Administrative Code, Title 43, Part 1, Chapter 2, Subchapter E, §2.107 and Code of Federal Regulations, Title 23, Chapter I, Subchapter H, §771.111 and Title 40, Chapter V, §1506, this notice advises the public that TxDOT will be conducting a public hearing on the proposed project. The hearing will be held on Tuesday October 11, 2016 at the Cedar Hill Recreation Center, 310 E Parkerville Road, Cedar Hill, Texas 75104. Displays will be available for viewing at 6:00 PM with the formal hearing starting at 7:00 PM. The purpose of the hearing is to present the planned improvements and to receive public comment on the proposed project.
The US 67 project proposes the widening of the existing US 67 from a four-lane roadway to a six-lane roadway within the limits extending from Belt Line Road to I-20 in Dallas County, Texas. The proposed roadway for this section would consist of constructing one additional 12-foot travel lane in each direction with a 10-foot outside shoulder and four-foot inside shoulder within the existing 300- to 400-foot right of way. Improvements would also include the addition of U-Turn bridges at Belt Line Road and Farm-to-Market (FM) 1382. The total project length of US 67 from Belt Line Road to I-20 is six miles. The proposed improvements would not require additional right-of-way or drainage easements. No residential or commercial property displacements or relocations would be required. The proposed project includes work within a FEMA-designated 100-year floodplain. The hydraulic design for this project would be in accordance with current FHWA and TxDOT design policies. The project would have permanent impacts to the Ten Mile Creek and Mauk stream channels totaling less than 0.001 acre and would be authorized under a USACE Section 404 Nationwide Permit (NWP) 14.
