The Texas Department of Transportation will hold a public hearing this month about a proposed project to widen Hwy 377 in Argyle.
The proposed project involves the full reconstruction of the existing two-lane rural roadway to a four-lane divided highway with sidewalk on 6.13 miles of Hwy 377 from just south of FM 1171 to just north of Crawford Road, according to a TxDOT public hearing notice.
The proposed improvements would potentially require approximately 36.3 acres of new right-of-way (ROW) and 0.6-acre for permanent easement.
The proposed typical section consists of a four- lane divided roadway — one 12-foot lane and one 14-foot lane in each direction — with a 19-foot raised median that would transition down to a six-foot median at intersections.
The proposed project also consists of dedicated left-turn lanes, signalized intersections, and six-foot sidewalks on the east side of the roadway for the entire length of the project.
The existing ROW varies and is typically 120 feet wide. The proposed ROW varies from 100 to 140 feet wide, including median and curb offsets. Although additional ROW is required, no residential or non-residential structures would be displaced.
The public hearing will be held on Sept. 27 at Argyle Middle School, 6601 Canyon Falls Drive.
Displays will be available for viewing at 6 p.m. with the formal hearing starting at 7 p.m. The purpose of the public hearing is to present the proposed project to the public and receive comments.
