TxDOT proposes widening Hwy. 664

The Texas Department of Transportation held a public meeting concerning the proposed widening of Hwy. 664 in Ellis County from a two-lane divided roadway to a six-lane, curb and gutter roadway on November 15 at the Live Oak Professional Development Center in Red Oak. This was an informal Open House meeting to give information to the public on the proposed widening of the highway to relieve traffic congestion and ease movement of private and commercial traffic between SH 287 in Waxahachie and I-45 in Ferris. The project would widen FM 664 from two lanes to a six-lane, curb-and-gutter roadway. It would be approximately 21 miles in length through the Cities of Waxahachie, Ovilla, Glen Heights, Oak Leaf, Red Oak and Ferris. The proposed improvements would also include constructing new interchanges at IH 35E, SH 342, and IH 45. Approximately 195 acres of additional right-of-way (ROW) and approximately 3 acres of easements would be needed to accommodate the proposed improvements. ROW acquisition would impact undeveloped property, commercial property, and residential property in the project area. The proposed project would impact the FEMA-designated 100-year floodplain.Read stories like this and more in your latest edition of The Ennis News. Be informed, subscribe today!
