FM 552 From SH 205 to SH 66 - Notice of Availability of Final Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for Public Review

Tuesday, August 27, 2019


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) 552 from State Highway (SH) 205 to SH 66 in Rockwall County.


TxDOT is proposing to widen and reconstruct FM 552 from SH 205 to SH 66 for a total distance of approximately 5.19 miles, through the cities of Fate, and Rockwall, in Rockwall County.

The proposed project would consist of an urban median separated roadway with four travel lanes (two in each direction). The two inside travel lanes would be 12-ft wide and the outside travel lanes would be 14-ft wide to accommodate shared-use of bicycles and vehicles. The proposed facility would include a raised median from SH 205 to John King Boulevard and from Dismore Lane to SH 66; and a 20-ft flush median between John King Boulevard and Dismore Lane. The project includes 6-ft or 10-ft wide sidewalks along the road within an approximate variable Right-of-Way (ROW) of 130- to 197 ft. The proposed design speed is 45 mph. The proposed improvements would require 40.26 acres of additional ROW to accommodate the proposed improvements.

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.
