The Texas Department of Transportation has notified affected property owners of its proposal to widen a section of FM 407 in southern Denton County.
The proposed project includes widening the 1.4-mille section of FM 407 from Gateway Drive in Argyle to Cleveland-Gibbs Road in Northlake. The roadway would be reconstructed from a two-lane rural highway to a six-lane urban section with turn lanes, an 18-foot-wide raised median and a sidewalk. The segment that passes under I-35W would be restriped to four through travel lanes, center left-turn lanes and a sidewalk.
TxDOT also has future plans to widen FM 407 through the rest of Argyle, as well.
More than eight acres of new right-of-way would be required.
TxDOT sent notice to affected local governments and property owners whose property is adjacent to the project and/or at least some of their property would need to be acquired. Those property owners were afforded an opportunity to comment as part of the environmental review process.
