The Rockwall County Road Consortium meets monthly to discuss major road projects through the county. Our expectation of having an environmental study done on S Hwy 205 within our McLendon-Chisholm City limits has been pushed back to May 2019.
The VE study for the project was held June 13 – 15, 2017. Halff Associates submitted the 95% schematic in September 2017. Halff submitted the 100% schematic in November 2017. Currently, the schematic is under review at Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).
Environmental: Public meetings to discuss the project were held on July 7 and July 12, 2016, at Rockwall and Terrell respectively. Halff finalized the public meeting summary and analysis report and submitted to TxDOT on October 28, 2016. Coordination meetings with adjacent property owners held on June 26 and 27, 2017. Halff has sent out right-of-entry letters to adjacent property owners on the southern project for purposes of field surveying work associated with design efforts. Halff continues work on technical reports.
One environmental technical report is outstanding. Conformity Report Form will be finalized after the STIP is approved, expected in November 2018. Anticipate submittal of draft Environmental Approval (EA) in May, pending completed agency coordination of cultural reports. District and ENV will perform concurrent reviews of the draft EA. Anticipate public hearing in June 2018.
