TxDOT Public Meeting on Proposed FM 552 Widening
May 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), in conjunction with Rockwall County, is proposing to widen 5.2 miles of FM 552 from SH 205 to SH 66 in Rockwall County, Texas. This notice advises the public that TxDOT will be conducting a Public Meeting on the proposed project. The meeting will be held on Thursday, May 17, 2018 at J. W. Williams Middle School, located at 625 E. FM 552, Rockwall, Texas 75087.
The meeting will be held in an open house format from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The purpose of the meeting is to present the planned improvements and to receive public comment on the proposed project. Representatives from TxDOT, Rockwall County and project consultants will be available to answer questions about the proposed project.
The proposed project would consist of the reconstruction and widening of FM 552 from SH 205 to SH 66 in Rockwall County. Proposed improvements would involve the widening of FM 552 from a two-lane highway to a four-lane highway. Expansion would consist of one 12-foot-wide travel lane and one 14-foot-wide outside shared-use lane for vehicles and bicycles in each direction; a proposed raised median from SH 205 to John King Boulevard and from Dismore Lane to SH 66; a 20-foot flush median between John King Boulevard and Dismore Lane; and sidewalks. The existing right-of-way varies between 80 and 130 feet in width and would increase with the proposed project. The proposed project is anticipated to require approximately 40 acres of additional right-of-way to widen the roadway, based on the preliminary schematic.
Maps showing the proposed project’s location and geometric design will be available for viewing at the public meeting. This information will also be on file and available for inspection Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at the TxDOT Dallas District Office, 4777 E. Highway 80, Mesquite, Texas 75150 and the TxDOT Kaufman/Rockwall Area Office located at 2750 S. Washington Street, Kaufman, Texas 75142.
