The proposed project would consist of the reconstruction and widening of SH 5 from FM 2786 (Stacy Road) to south of FM 1378 (Country Club Road) within the town of Fairview in Collin County, Texas, and is approximately 1.99 miles in length. The proposed project would reconstruct and widen existing SH 5 from a two-lane rural roadway to a fourlane urban divided curbed roadway (6-lane ultimate) from FM 2786 (Stacy Road) to Indian Springs Road and a fourlane divided curbed roadway from Indian Springs Road to south of FM 1378 (Country Club Road).

The existing right-of-way width varies from 66 feet to 193 feet. The proposed improvements would include curb and gutter, bicycle and pedestrian shared-use paths on both sides of the roadway, intersection improvements, and left-turn and right-turn lanes at designated locations.

The proposed right-of-way width would vary from 116 feet to 193 feet. The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional right of way. Relocation assistance is available for displaced persons and businesses. Information about the TxDOT Relocation Assistance Program and services and benefits for those displaced and other affected property owners, as well as information about the tentative schedule for right-of-way acquisition and construction, can be obtained from the TxDOT district office by calling (214) 320-6675 or by visiting the project website.

The proposed project is anticipated to impact the following properties protected under Section 4(f) of the Department of Transportation Act of 1966: Town of Fairview’s Meadows Park. This recreational area is designated public property also subject to Chapter 26 of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Code.

The proposed project would result in the acquisition of approximately 0.2 acres of additional right of way of park land for the construction of additional travel lanes and the construction of the shared-used path. TxDOT anticipates making a de minimis determination for this use under Section 4(f) of the Department of Transportation Act of 1966.

Public comment on the effects of the proposed project on the activities, features or attributes of the Meadows Park and the greenspace may be submitted as described below. The proposed project would involve construction in wetlands. The proposed project would involve an action in a floodplain.

Any environmental documentation or studies, any maps and drawings showing the project location and design, tentative construction schedules, and other information regarding the proposed project are on file and available for inspection Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at TxDOT Dallas District Office, 4777 East U.S. Highway 80, Mesquite, Texas 75150.

Project materials are also available online at the project website. The public hearing will be conducted in English. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs.

If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the virtual public hearing or in-person option, please contact the Dallas District Public Information Office at (214) 320-4480 no later than 4 p.m., Friday, March 17, 2023.

Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for the TxDOT to arrange.
