TxDOT is developing preliminary plans for the expansion of FM 756 from Jeff Davis Drive, south to FM 344. The scope of work includes widening the existing two-lane roadway to a four-lane divided highway with a continuous left-turn lane. Proposed improvements also include a grade-separated interchange at the intersection of FM 346.
This project will require the acquisition of new right of way from adjacent property owners.
TxDOT plans to host a public hearing in the summer of 2021. Meeting details will be posted to this web page as soon as they are available. Adjacent property owners will receive notification by mail. All interested citizens will have an opportunity to provide comments. The public may ask questions at any time during the project development process.
To date, the following outreach has occurred:
The project is expected to be constructed in three phases. Phase 1 extends from Jeff Davis Drive south to FM 346. Phase 2 extends from FM 346 south to FM 344 in the city of Bullard. Phase 3 involves the construction of an overpass and ramps at FM 346 and FM 756.
Next steps include:
