The proposed project involves the reconstruction of the existing two-lane rural roadway to a four (ultimate six) lane divided highway. A continuous 10-foot shared use path would be constructed on the east and west sides of the proposed roadway alignment. The proposed project consists generally of four (ultimate six) lanes with curb and gutter, plus a raised median. The roadway passes through the cities of Nevada and Josephine. The existing FM 6 right-of-way (ROW) width ranges from 60-feet to 100-feet wide throughout the length of the project. The proposed ROW width is 140 feet.

The proposed project would, subject to final design consideration, require approximately 45 acres of additional ROW and potentially displace structures on commercial and/or residential properties. 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 ROW acquisition and construction, can be obtained from the TxDOT Dallas District office by calling (214) 320-6675 or online at the project website.   

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 the TxDOT Dallas District office at 4777 East Highway 80 Mesquite, Texas 75150. Project materials will also be available online at or in hard copy form for review at the in-person meeting.
