CSJ: 0549-03-021, 0549-03-024

This notice is to advise the public that the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the proposed improvements to State Highway (SH) 121 by widening the facility from a two-lane facility to a four-lane divided facility from the Collin County Outer Loop to north of County Road (CR) 635 in Collin and Fannin Counties, Texas. The proposed SH 121 improvements would include reconstructing and widening the existing two-lane undivided roadway facility to a rural four-lane divided highway (two lanes in each direction) consisting of 12-ft wide travel lanes, with a 40-ft wide grass median, with grass-lined ditches, a four-ft. wide inside shoulders, and discontinuous frontage roads. Based on the proposed project area’s location within a predominately rural sector of Collin County, the 10-ft wide outside shoulders would serve as bicycle accommodations for projects. Grade separated intersections are proposed at FM 455 and FM 2862. The length of the SH 121 proposed widening improvement project is approximately 9.52 miles.

Copies of the FONSI Document, the approved Final Environmental Assessment, the Public Hearing Transcript for the August 8, 2017 public hearing, the Public Hearing Summary and Analysis Report, which includes the Responses to Public Comments, and the Certification of Public Involvement for this project, are available for public inspection and reproduction at the TxDOT Dallas District Library, at 4777 East Highway 80, in Mesquite, Texas 75150.
