The Texas Department of Transportation Beaumont District is proposing to reconstruct FM 565 from SH 99 to SH 146 on the east side of Baytown in Chambers County, Texas.

The project would require additional right of way from SH 146 to FM 1405; exact amount of right of way has yet to be determined. The project costs approximately $39 million.
In addition, the public may also learn more about the FM 565 “S-Curve” project – a nearby project that’s currently underway. The FM 565 “S-Curve” project proposes to realign and eliminate the “S” curve to meet current design standards, from approximately 1.02 miles west of FM 2354 to 0.36 miles east of FM 1405.
