Purpose: TxDOT invites interested citizens to come learn about the proposed widening alternatives to FM 2493 from FM 346 in Flint to US 69 in Bullard. The public can review the designs, ask questions and provide comments. Proposed work includes widening from a two-lane to a four-lane roadway with a continuous left-turn lane. This is an open house format with no formal presentation. Citizens may come and go at their convenience. Project team members will be available to answer questions.
Description: TxDOT is developing preliminary plans for improvements to FM 2493 from FM 346 in Flint to US 69 south of Bullard. These improvements will help ease congestion and improve safety through this area. Enhancements include:

  • Widening from a two-lane road to a four-lane divided highway with curb and gutter
  • Adding a continuous center left-turn lane to provide additional safety for drivers
  • Incorporating sidewalks and bicycle lanes for pedestrians and cyclists respectively

The project would require the acquisition of additional right of way.
