The Grayson County Tollway study is examining the possible extension of the Dallas North Tollway from FM 121 south of Gunter to US 75 near Denison.
The proposed project would extend the proposed tollway 33 miles and provide traffic relief to US 75. Dallas-Fort Worth is projected to expand north and this project would accommodate that shift, provide an alternative for truck traffic and provide easier access to Sherman, Denison and Lake Texoma.
The proposed project will also increase regional mobility and connect the Sherman-Denison metropolitan planning area with the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area.
The study will identify and evaluate potential alignments for expansion and examine the potential environmental impacts.
Current Study Area - FM 121 Gunter Relief Route
A route and feasibility study is underway for a proposed four-mile relief route. The study will identify and evaluate project development alternatives within the corridor. Alternatives include building a new alignment south of Gunter with a bridge over SH 289.
The study limits are west of SH 289 to east of SH 289 on FM 121. The study will also evaluate traffic demands and intermodal connections with other transportation facilities.
