PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  TxDOT proposes to construct two additional travel lanes parallel to the State Highway (SH) 242 roadway within the existing roadway right-of-way (ROW).  The two new 12-foot travel lanes would be striped for westbound traffic.  Once the westbound lanes are completed, the existing SH 242 roadway would be restriped for eastbound traffic resulting in a four-lane divided roadway separated by an approximately 36-foot-wide depressed grassy median.  Culverts beneath the existing roadway would be extended as needed to maintain the flow of water within the project limits.  Sidewalks would be constructed on the north side of SH 242 along the Lone Star Estates and Summerset Estates residential subdivisions.  In addition to the proposed westbound roadway, a two-lane bridge at Dry Creek and a designated sidewalk area, would be constructed for westbound travel.  The total length of the proposed project within the project limits, from east of FM 1314 to west of FM 1485, is approximately 3.46 miles.  The existing SH 242 ROW varies within the project limits but ranges from 200 feet to 240 feet in width and is approximately 85 acres in size.  No additional ROW would be required for the implementation of the proposed project.

The proposed SH 242 project, within the project limits, involves the following potential 2.510 acre of potential impacts to waters of the US, including wetlands:

•             Permanent Impacts to Waters of the US - A total of 0.006 acre of permanent impacts to Area 2D may occur as a result of the removal and/or replacement of a culvert which conveys water from west to east beneath a commercial driveway.

•             Permanent Impacts to wetlands - A total of 2.504 acres of direct/permanent impacts to Wetland Areas (WA) 2A, 2C, 2D, 2H, 2I, 2J, 2K, 2L, 2M and 2N may occur during the implementation of the proposed project.  To ensure that any and all potential permanent impacts are identified and mitigated,        this plan presumes that these 10 wetland areas will be eliminated in their entirety from the roadway ROW during the implementation of the proposed project.
