The City of Haslet and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will hold a public meeting to display alternatives to reconstruct and widen Avondale-Haslet Road from the Haslet city limits to FM 156, to extend Avondale-Haslet Road to I-35W or Westport Parkway, and extend Intermodal Parkway. The meeting will be an open house format allowing visitors to come and go at their availability to be held on Thursday, October 25, 2018, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm, Hampton Inn & Suites N. Ft. Worth-Alliance Airport, 13600 North Freeway, Fort Worth, TX 76177.
The preferred alternative would increase capacity along Avondale-Haslet Road, provide intersection improvements at FM 156/Avondale-Haslet Road and provide a direct connection for mobility ad transit from FM 156 to I-35W. As part of the proposed roadway extension, a new intersection would be constructed at Schoolhouse Road. In addition, Intermodal Parkway would be extended southward to the proposed roadway extension to enhance traffic circulation, relieve traffic congestion and to provide a new route for freight traffic.
An additional alternative includes extending Avondale-Haslet Road from FM 156 to Westport Parkway and extending Intermodal Parkway southward and eastward to connect to I-35W/SH 170.
Layouts reflecting the reconstructed/widened roadway and new roadways would be displayed at the Public Meeting.
Verbal and written comments relative to the proposed improvements may be provided at the meeting. Written comments may also be submitted on or before November 9, 2018 to the City of Haslet, Attention: Travis Attanasio, P.E., City Engineer, 101 Main St., Haslet, TX 76052, to be included in the Public Meeting Record.
