SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Notice is hereby given that the FHWA and other Federal agencies have taken final agency actions by issuing licenses, permits, and approvals for the highway project in the State of Texas: State Highway (SH) 360 from East Sublett Road/West Camp Wisdom Road to U.S. Highway 287 in Tarrant, Ellis, and Johnson Counties. Project Reference Number: TxDOT CSJ: 2266-02-136. Project Type: The project will transition from the existing 4-lane (two mainlanes in each direction) roadway to an 8-lane (four mainlanes in each direction) divided tollway from 1,310 feet north of E. Sublett Road/W. Start Printed Page 17640Camp Wisdom Road to Debbie Lane/Ragland Road and then to a 6-lane (three mainlanes in each direction) divided tollway from Debbie Lane/Ragland Road to US 287. The project would also include improvements at the SH 360/US 287 interchange. Although the proposed project would be constructed primarily within the existing right of way (ROW), a total of approximately 6.0 acres of proposed ROW are needed to transition cross streets from the existing roadway width to the ultimate width at the SH 360 frontage roads. Project Length: Approximately nine and two tenth (9.2) miles. General Purpose: The purpose of the proposed project is to add mainlanes to the existing frontage road system in order to provide effective transportation while enhancing mobility within the rapidly developing SH 360 corridor for the growing population in southern Tarrant, northwest Ellis, and northeast Johnson counties. The actions by the Federal agencies on the project, and the laws under which such actions were taken, are described in the documented environmental assessment (EAs), issued in connection with the project and Finding Of No Significant Impact (FONSI) document obtained on January 16, 2014; and in other documents in the FHWA project record for the project.
