The virtual public hearing will be held on Tuesday, June 30, 2020 and will be available through Wednesday, July 15, 2020. All comments must be received on or before July 15, 2020.


The purpose of the virtual public hearing is to present the proposed improvements to FM 1641 and FM 548 and solicit public comments. The virtual public hearing will consist of a pre-recorded video presentation explaining the proposed project, which includes both audio and video components, along with other exhibits and materials for review. Formal comments may be provided by mail, email, or voicemail as described in the notice and on the virtual public hearing website.


The FM 1641 reconstruction project includes widening approximately 0.2 miles of FM 548 and approximately 5.4 miles of FM 1641. The existing FM 548 is a 4-lane urban roadway, and the existing FM 1641 is a rural 2-lane roadway. Both roadways would be reconstructed to an urban 4-lane (ultimate 6-lane) section with turn lanes. A raised median would be added, and 14-foot wide shared-use lanes to accommodate bicycles and 6-foot wide sidewalks would be added in each direction. The existing right-of-way (ROW) width is approximately 90 feet wide with the proposed project ROW width being approximately 130 feet wide. Approximately 20.3 acres of new ROW and 3.0 acres of permanent drainage easements would be required to accommodate the proposed improvements.
