Project would extend from FM 1417 south
to the Collin-Grayson County line

Sherman, Texas -- The Texas Department of Transportation is proposing to widen US 75 in Grayson County from FM 1417 south to the Grayson-Collin County line. Property owners along this portion of US 75, along with local government and public officials, have an opportunity to comment on the environmental review process for this project.

The purpose of this proposed project is to add capacity, improve traffic operations by converting frontage roads from two-way to one-way, add frontage road turn around opportunities, and add ramp improvements along this portion of US 75.

The project would extend approximately 14 miles, widening this portion of US 75 from two mainlanes to
three mainlanes in each direction. Main traffic lanes in each direction would be 12 feet wide, with 10- to 11-
foot-wide inside shoulders, and 10-foot-wide outside shoulders separated from mainlanes by a two-foot-
wide concrete traffic barrier. No additional right of way would be required, officials said.

Environmental documentation, studies, maps and drawings and other information pertinent to this proposed
project are on file and available for viewing at two locations: the TxDOT Paris District Office, 1365 N. Main,
Paris, Texas 75460; and the TxDOT Sherman Area Office, 3904 South US 75, Sherman, Texas, 75090.

The project materials are in English. If you need an interpreter or document translator, one will be provided
for you. These arrangements and disability access arrangements can be requested by calling (903) 737-
9213 no later than 4 p.m. Central Time at least three business days before the date you would like to review
