TxDOT is proposing improvements to US 287 from US 67 to BUS 287 in Ellis County, Texas.


The proposed project includes:

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

The project is approximately 8.3 miles long. The existing right of way is 250 feet and the proposed right of way ranges between 274 and 342 feet.

The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional right of way and potentially displace two 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 Public Information Office at 214-320‑4480, TxDOT Dallas District, no later than 4 p.m. Friday, May 26, 2023. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
