Purpose:

TxDOT Paris District, with support from the Grayson County Regional Mobility Authority, is proposing to construct a new location roadway from Scharff Road to SH 289 (Preston Road) south of Gunter and also to reconstruct and widen FM 121W from SH 289 to FM 3356 in Grayson County, Texas.  

Description:

FM 121 Gunter Relief Project

The FM 121 Gunter Relief Route Project would construct a 3.6-mile long new location, four-lane divided roadway with a center two-way left-turn lane from Scharff Road SH 289 south of Gunter, TX. 

For the FM 121 Gunter Relief Route Project, although additional right of way would be required, no residential or non-residential structures are anticipated to be displaced at this time. Information concerning services and benefits available to affected property owners and information about the tentative schedule for right-of-way acquisition and construction can be obtained from the TxDOT district office by calling (903) 737-9300.

FM 121W Project

The FM 121W Project would widen the existing two-lane undivided roadway into a four-lane divided roadway with a center two-way left-turn lane from SH 289 to FM 3356; a distance of 7.2 miles.

For the FM 121W Project, subject to final design considerations, would require additional right of way and would potentially displace 2 residences and 9 non-residential structures.  Relocation assistance is available for displaced persons and businesses.  Information about the TxDOT Relocation Assistance Program and services and benefits for those displaced and other affected property owners, as well as information about the tentative schedule for right-of-way acquisition and construction, can be obtained from the TxDOT district office by calling (903) 737-9300.

The proposed projects would involve actions in floodplains and may involve actions in wetlands.

Special Accommodations:

The virtual public meeting and in-person option will be conducted in English.  If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you.  If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs.  If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the virtual public meeting or in-person option, please contact the TxDOT Paris District Public Information Office at (903) 737‑9213 no later than 4 p.m. CT, on Thursday, June 16, 2022.  Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
