NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY OF ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT AND NOTICE AFFORDING AN OPPORTUNITY FOR PUBLIC HEARING Bulverde Road Improvements - from Marshall Road to Wilderness Oak Bexar County, in cooperation with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), proposes to widen Bulverde Road in north central Bexar County, Texas from a two-lane to a four-lane roadway. Construction will begin at TPC Parkway and extend 1.2 miles north of Marshall Road for a total construction length of 1.3 miles. The existing facility is a rural type design with no curbs, gutters, or storm drain system. Storm water is carried through grass-lined roadside swales. There are currently two 12-foot lanes with four-foot shoulders in an existing 86-foot right-of-way, five drainage easements, and two bridge class culverts. There are no existing pedestrian accommodations in this section of Bulverde Road. The project will widen and reconstruct Bulverde Road to four lanes with five-foot shoulders (for a pavement width of 56 feet), curb and gutter, and retaining walls. The proposed right-of-way will vary with a 109-foot maximum width. A five-foot sidewalk will be built on the east side of Bulverde Road from TPC Parkway to Bulverde Oaks. Right and left turn lanes will be provided at the Marshall Road, Valley Creek, and Bulverde Oaks intersections. A new traffic signal will be provided at Bulverde Oaks. Three water quality batch detention ponds will be built adjacent to three existing drainage easements on the east side of Bulverde Road to protect water quality in the Edwards Aquifer Recharge Zone and to satisfy the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality requirements. No residential or commercial displacements will occur. Bexar County has consulted with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in coordination with TxDOT for potential effects to the Golden-cheeked warbler and listed karst invertebrate species. This consultation is complete pending implementation of agreed upon voluntary conservation measures. Project-related impacts to two surface waters (Elm Waterhole Creek [0.1 acre] and an unnamed tributary to Elm Waterhole Creek [0.1 acre]) would be accomplished under a Nationwide Permit 14. A pre-construction notification was submitted to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and a permit decision is pending. The proposed project crosses the 100-year floodplain associated with each stream. Maps showing the project location and design, environmental document, tentative construction schedules, and other project information are available for inspection Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at Bexar County offices located at 233 N. Pecos La Trinidad, Suite 420, San Antonio, TX 78283. Any interested citizen may request a public hearing covering the social, economic and environmental effects of the proposed location and design for this project. Requests for a public hearing must be submitted in writing on or before May 29, 2016, to Bexar County, Mr. Reggie Fountain, P.E., 233 N. Pecos La Trinidad, Suite 420, San Antonio, TX 78283. If you have general questions or concerns regarding the proposed project, you may contact Mr. Bob Austin, P.E., at (210) 321-4320. 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 16, 2014, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT.
