FM 1173 from FM 156 to IH 35 - Public Meeting

Tuesday, May 08, 2018

CSJ No. 1059-01-047

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will conduct a Public Meeting for the purpose of soliciting public comments on proposed feasibility study of Farm to Market Road (FM) 1173 from FM 156 (S. 1st Street) to Interstate Highway (IH) 35, a distance of approximately 3.6 miles. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 8, 2018 at the Krum High School Cafeteria, located at 700 Bobcat Blvd, Krum, TX 76249.

The Public Meeting will be an Open House format with no formal presentation from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The purpose of the meeting is to present the planned improvements and to receive public comment on the proposed project. Representatives from TxDOT and project consultants will be available to answer questions about the proposed project.

The proposed study consists of the reconstruction and widening of FM 1173 from FM 156 in Krum, to IH 35 in Denton, TX. The improvements would include the expansion of the current 2-lane rural roadway to a 6-lane urban roadway. Expansion would consist of one 12-foot wide travel lane and one 14-foot wide outside shared-use lane in each direction, a proposed median, and sidewalks located along the outside of both the eastbound and westbound lanes. The existing right-of-way (ROW) width is 80 feet and will increase with the proposed project. The proposed ROW is anticipated to acquire approximately 43 acres to expand the roadway, based on this preliminary level of design.
