Full Public Notice           Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to discharge fill material during road expansion activities to reduce congestion, increase safety, and improve operational efficiency along a congested and developing FM 1093 corridor.

The proposed project is approximately 5.3 miles in length.  The construction limits of the proposed project are from approximately 0.6-mile west of FM 723/Spring Green Boulevard to FM 359 in Fulshear, with a transition to the existing section at James Lane west of FM 359.  The proposed roadway improvement project would extend the existing Westpark Tollway (four-lane controlled access tollway with continuous non-toll frontage roads) from 0.6-mile west of FM 723/Spring Green Boulevard to Cross Creek Ranch Boulevard.  The toll lanes would terminate and tie into a non-toll four-lane divided facility approximately 1,500 feet west of Cross Creek Ranch Boulevard.  The four-lane divided facility would continue west to FM 359 in Fulshear and transition to the existing roadway section at James Lane.  The outside lanes of the non-toll frontage roads and the four-lane divided roadway are proposed shared-use lanes that would accommodate cyclists.  A five-foot sidewalk is proposed on the north side of the proposed project.  Such activities include impacts to 796 linear feet of multiple streams, 2.26 acres of forested wetlands, and 0.53 acre to other waters.  A total of 1,300 linear feet of impacts to unculverted portions of streams is anticipated as a result of construction.
