The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will conduct a Public Meeting for the purpose of soliciting public comments on the proposed reconstruction and widening of Interstate (IH) 35W from the Denton/Tarrant County Line to IH 35/IH 35E. The meeting will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 19, 2018 at Argyle Middle School, located at 6601 Canyon Falls Drive, Argyle, Texas 76226.
The Public Meeting will be an Open House format with no formal presentation. Representatives from TxDOT and project consultants will be available to answer questions about the proposed project improvements.
The proposed project would consist of the reconstruction and widening of IH 35W from the Denton/Tarrant County line to the IH 35/IH35E interchange within the cities and towns of Denton, Argyle, Draper, Flower Mound, Northlake, Fort Worth, and Haslet in Denton and Tarrant Counties, Texas. The IH 35W mainlanes would be widened from four lanes to six lanes. Continuous four lane frontage roads with auxiliary lanes would be added from Dale Earnhardt Way to the IH 35/IH 35E interchange. Existing ramps would be reconfigured and/or relocated. Cross street intersections would be upgraded to an urban style intersection and may require grade separation. Additional right-of-way is anticipated to be needed for the addition of the new frontage roads. Construction is anticipated to take place in phases, with frontage road improvements occurring first.
Maps showing the proposed project’s location and geometric design will be available for viewing at the public meeting. The public meeting notice and venue map will also be available online at www.keepitmovingdallas.com under Upcoming Public Hearing/Meeting.
