Notice of Virtual Public Meeting for Improvements to Farm-to-Market Road (FM) 1385, Denton County

Tuesday, August 25, 2020

CSJ: 1315-01-030


The virtual public meeting will be posted to


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


The purpose of the virtual public meeting is to present the proposed improvements to FM 1385 and solicit public comments. The virtual public meeting 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 meeting website.


The FM 1385 reconstruction project includes widening an approximately 12-mile section of FM 1385 from US 380 to FM 455. The existing FM 1385 is a two-lane rural highway with 12-foot wide shoulders within the existing right-of-way varying from 80 to 120 feet wide. The proposed FM 1385 would be reconstructed as a six-lane divided urban facility. In addition, a potential reroute of the central portion of FM 1385 is being evaluated. The 0.9-mile long potential reroute is located south of Mustang Road and would directly connect FM 1385 to the north and south without requiring vehicles to travel along the Mustang Road portion of the existing FM 1385. The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional right-of-way and would potentially have several displacements to residential, non-residential, and other secondary structures.
