This notice advises the public that a final environmental assessment (EA) is available for public review and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has issued a finding of no significant impact (FONSI) for the proposed Farm-to-Market (FM) 2514 (Parker Road) from East of Lavon Parkway to Brown Street in the City of Wylie and the Town of St. Paul, and unincorporated areas in Collin County, Texas.


TxDOT is proposing to widen an existing two-lane roadway to a four-lane (ultimately six-lane) urban divided highway. The proposed typical section would have a 14-foot outside shared-use lane and an 11-foot inside lane with a 40-foot raised center median. The left-turn lane at median openings would be 11 feet wide, and the median width would be reduced accordingly. This configuration would accommodate the future expansion of one additional 11-foot inside lane in each direction to a point south of Park Blvd. Thus, the future median width would be reduced to 20 feet. The project’s southern terminus would include transitioning down to the existing 2-lane section, south of Brown Street. This short section is approximately 0.94 mile in length and would consist of one 11-foot and one 14-foot lane in each direction. The project length is approximately 3.34 miles.

Memorandum of Understanding:

The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried-out by TxDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 16, 2014, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT.
