TxDOT in partnership with Rockwall County is proposing widen and reconstruct FM 551 from SH 276 to SH 66 in Rockwall County, Texas.


The proposed improvements would widen 3.25 miles of FM 551 from SH 276 to SH 66. From SH 276 to I-30, FM 551 would be widened from two 11-foot-wide travel lanes to four 12-foot-wide travel lanes, separated by a grass median. From I-30 north to SH 66, FM 551 would be widened from two 11-foot-wide travel lanes to two 12-foot-wide travel lanes with a 14-foot-wide center turn lane. A 10-foot-wide shared use path for bicyclists and pedestrians would be constructed along both sides of the roadway.

The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional right of way (ROW) and potentially displace eight residences and three non-residential structures.

Accessibility The virtual public meeting and in-person option will be conducted in English. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the virtual public meeting or in-person option, please contact the TxDOT Dallas District Public Information Office at (214) 320-4480, no later than 4 p.m., Monday, December 4, 2023. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
