The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is proposing to widen FM 2931 from US 380 to FM 428 in Denton County. The FM 2931 reconstruction project includes widening approximately 6.37 miles of FM 2931 with a 900-foot transition north of FM 428/Spring Hill Road; no cross-street improvements are proposed. The typical proposed right-of-way (ROW) would be approximately 130 feet wide, with the minimum and maximum ROW width ranging from 126 feet to 244 feet, respectively.

The proposed project involves the full reconstruction of the existing two-lane rural roadway to a four-lane urban roadway (ultimately six lanes) with turn lanes. The project would require the acquisition of a new ROW on both sides of FM 2931 along the length of the corridor, depending on the configuration of the proposed roadway. The total proposed ROW acreage is estimated at 45.9 acres. The proposed project passes through the Town of Providence Village, the Town of Little Elm, the City of Aubrey, and Denton County.

The proposed widening of FM 2931 would result in the acquisition of approximately 0.49 acre of additional
ROW along the east side of FM 2931 from Lakeview Park (north and south), owned by the Town of Providence Village.

No ROW acquisition would occur from within the fenced areas, no landscaping or trees would be affected, and no amenities would be affected by the proposed project. Therefore, TxDOT is considering a Section 4(f) De Minimis determination for impacts to the city park.

Because the proposed improvements would result in the acquisition of public land, Chapter 26 of the Parks and Wildlife Code applies to the proposed project.

The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional ROW but there would
be no residential or non-residential structure displacements. Relocation assistance is available for
displaced persons and businesses. Information about the TxDOT Relocation Assistance and services and benefits for displaces and other affected property owners, as well as information about the tentative schedule for right-of-way- acquisition and construction, can be obtained from the TxDOT district office by calling (214) 320-6675 or online at the project website.

Any environmental documentation or studies, any maps, and drawings showing the project location and design, tentative construction schedules, and other information regarding the proposed project are on file and available for inspection Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the TxDOT Dallas District office at 4777 East Highway 80 Mesquite, Texas 75150. Project materials are also available online at the project website.

These materials will also be available in hard copy form for review at the inperson public hearing option.

The public hearing will be conducted in English. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be
provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to
accommodate most needs. If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the public hearing, please contact the Dallas District Public Information Office, at (214) 320-4480 no later than 4 p.m. Thursday, June 23, 2022.

Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.

Comments from the public regarding the proposed project are requested and may be submitted by mail to
the TxDOT Dallas District Office, 4777 East Highway 80 Mesquite, Texas 75150, or by email to
Nelson.Underwood@txdot.gov.

Verbal comments may be submitted by calling (833) 933-0437. All comments must be received on or before Friday, July 15, 2022. Responses to comments received will be available online at the website shown above once they have been prepared.

If you have any general questions or concerns regarding the proposed project or the hearing, please contact the TxDOT project manager, Nelson Underwood P.E., by phone at (214) 320-6628, or by email at
Nelson.Underwood@txdot.gov.

The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental
laws for this project are being, or have been, carried-out by TxDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 9, 2019, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT.
