FM 565 S-Curve Project
The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Beaumont District is planning to improve FM 565 from 0.305 mile west of FM 2354 to 0.018 miles east of FM 1405 on the east side of Baytown in Chambers County, Texas.
The proposed project is anticipated to improve safety and enhance mobility.
The approximately 1.86 mile project includes:
- Reconstruct and widen to two 12-foot lanes with two 10-foot shoulders
- 14-foot center left hand turn at the entrance driveways to Ameriport and Jindal Saw USA with 3-foot shoulders
- Realign FM 565 from approximately 1.02 miles west of FM 2354 to 0.36 miles east of FM 1405 to eliminate an undesirable "S" curve that does not meet current standards
Approximately fifteen acres of new right of way (ROW) was acquired to accommodate this project between 1988 and 1995.
