Public Meeting - FM 552 in Rockwall County
Where: Williams Middle School
625 E. FM 552
Rockwall, TX 75087
When: Thursday, April 10, 2014
5 p.m. - 7 p.m.
   
Purpose: The purpose of the meeting is to present proposed roadway improvements within a 5.2-mile long section of FM 552. The meeting will be an "open house" format, with TxDOT staff and consulting engineers available in an informal setting to answer questions. 
   
Description: The proposed project is needed to address an expected increase in traffic, conform to local planning efforts and provide safer geometric and operating conditions. Proposed improvements include:
  • Two 11- to 12-foot wide inside lanes and one 14-foot-wide outside shared-use lane in each direction
  • An 18-foot-wide median with 1-foot to 2-foot curb offsets, a 6-foot to 10-foot-wide sidewalk with a minimum of 9-foot offset from face of curb
  • Dedicated left and right turn lanes along FM 552 at major intersections with SH 205, John King Boulevard, FM 1141 and FM 3549
  • A 10-foot-wide left-turn bay  in the median at various cross streets
  • The horizontal and vertical alignment improved to satisfy a 40 mph design for an urban arterial facility; major cross street connection design speeds would vary between 40 mph and 45 mph
  • Drainage improvements include replacing the existing side ditches with a curb and gutter section
  • Approximately 52 acres of additional right of way and easements would be needed to accommodate the project; one residential property and no commercial property would be displaced
