The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Dallas District will hold a public hearing regarding the proposed reconstruction and widening of existing US 380 from SL 288 to west of CR 26 (county line) in Denton County, Texas. This notice advises the public that a draft environmental assessment (EA) and technical reports are available for public review and that TxDOT will be conducting a public hearing on the proposed project. The hearing will be held on Tuesday, April 24, 2018 at Navo Middle School, 1701 Navo Road, Aubrey, Texas 76227. Displays will be available for viewing at 6:00 p.m. with the formal hearing starting at 7:00 p.m. The purpose of the hearing is to present the planned improvements and to receive public comment on the proposed project.

The proposed project would reconstruct and widen approximately 14.6 miles of existing US 380 from a four-lane undivided rural roadway to a six-lane divided urban roadway from the US 377/US 380 intersection to the Denton/Collin County line. The improved roadway would include two 11- to 12-foot wide inside travel lanes and one 14-foot wide outside shared-use lane (for bicycle accommodation) with raised median and curb and gutter in each direction. The existing roadway right-of-way width ranges from 120 feet to 330 feet. The proposed right-of-way width would vary between 127 and 330 feet, except at grade separated intersections. New grade separations are planned at Legacy Drive, Teel Parkway, Navo Road, Farm-to-Market (FM) 423, and FM 720. Existing bridges at Little Elm Creek and Doe Branch would be widened. A minimum five-foot wide sidewalk would be located along the outer lanes of the roadway. The proposed sidewalks would meet Americans with Disabilities Act design criteria. The proposed project traverses City of Denton, Town of Crossroads, City of Frisco, Town of Providence Village, Town of Little Elm, and the Town of Prosper.
