The proposed project would construct 3.5 miles of a new location non-freeway roadway of FM 1171.  Construction within the project limits would be proposed as both urban and rural.  The proposed facility would consist of widening a portion of John Wiley Road to a six-lane urban roadway (three lanes in each direction) and extending the six-lane roadway east beyond FM 156 to a proposed connection/extension to Harmonson Road.  The proposed facility would then become a divided four-lane rural roadway and extend approximately 1.9 miles to the east, where it could again become a six-lane urban roadway as it approaches I-35W.  The project would add a pedestrian/bicycle shared use path and sidewalk.
