Purpose TxDOT is proposing improvements to the US 287 corridor, from Boyce Road to Cooke Road in Ellis County, Texas.

The project is located along US 287 from Boyce Road to Cooke Road and includes:

  • Constructing new two-lane northbound and southbound US 287 frontage roads
  • One six-foot sidewalk on the southbound side
  • Ten-foot shared-use path for bicyclists and pedestrians on the northbound side
  • New access ramps
  • New grade separated interchanges

The project is approximately 1.4 miles long. The existing right of way is 250 feet and the proposed right of way ranges between 297 and 324 feet.


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 Public Information Office at (214) 320-4480, TxDOT Dallas District, no later than 4 p.m. Monday, March 6, 2023. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
