The proposed improvements consist of constructing two to three freeway main lanes in each direction within the grass median of US 175 from north of BUS 175 (State Loop 346) to east of FM 1895, a distance of approximately 2.1 miles, in the City of Kemp, Kaufman County, Texas.  Grade separated interchanges would be constructed at BUS 175 and FM 1895.  The existing US 175 would become frontage roads.  Entrance and exit ramps would be added between the existing frontage roads and proposed freeway main lanes.  The existing typical right-of-way (ROW) width is approximately 600 feet.  No additional ROW would be required to construct the proposed project.
