The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is proposing to improve and widen SH 114 from east of IH 35W to west of US 377 in Denton County, Texas. This notice advises the public that TxDOT is affording an opportunity for a public hearing on the proposed project.
The proposed improvements include constructing a new six-lane rural freeway with two to three-lane frontage roads in each direction and ramps. There are two cross streets within the project limits. At Cleveland Gibbs Road/Dale Earnhardt Way, the mainlanes will cross with an overpass and the Litsey Road/Briarwick Parkway interchange will be an underpass. The proposed project includes constructing six 12-foot wide mainlanes and reconstructing four to six 12-foot wide frontage road lanes with 4-foot inside and 10-foot outside shoulders. The mainlanes will be divided with a concrete barrier along the centerline. The existing right-of-way width along SH 114 varies from 420 to 500-feet in width and along Dale Earnhardt Way the width is 80-feet.
The proposed project would involve construction in wetlands. The proposed project would involve an action in a floodplain.
