TxDOT is developing preliminary plans for improvements to address safety concerns at the intersection of US 69 and FM 779, east of Golden.


Enhancements will include:

  • Constructing a grade-separated interchange with US 69 bridging over FM 779
  • Access to FM 779 will be maintained with ramps
  • Include Texas turnarounds under overpass
  • Widening FM 779 at the intersection to include left-turn lanes
  • Widening of US 69 to its ultimate four-lane section with depressed median
  • Incorporating median crossovers on US 69, north and south of FM 779

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


Right of way acquisitions are expected to begin in 2018. Construction funds have not been identified at this time. However, anticipated construction is set to begin in 2019.
