Purpose: This open house will provide the public with the opportunity to review the preferred alternative and provide additional input to TxDOT staff. This alternative widens the road evenly on both sides in the northern half of the project and widens the existing roadway to the west for most of the southern half. 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: Improvements to FM 2493 between FM 2813 (Gresham) and FM 346 (Flint) south of Tyler, which will help ease congestion and improve safety include:
  • Widening from a two-lane farm road to a four-lane divided highway with curb and gutter to accommodate expected growth in traffic
  • Center left-turn lane to provide additional safety for drivers
  • Sidewalks for pedestrians
In addition, the sight distance problem at Spruce Hill Road will be fixed, improving driver safety. The project will require the acquisition of new right of way.
