FM 917 from I-35W to BU-287 in Mansfield

Project background

TxDOT is studying the FM 917 improvements project to identify potential solutions to transportation needs along the corridor. The project is located along FM 917 from I-35W to west of Mansfield in Johnson County, a length of approximately 10 miles.

This area of FM 917 does not accommodate current demands on the roadway, nor does it meet current roadway design standards. Today, FM 917 consists of one lane in each direction with no separation, no bicyclist or pedestrian accommodations, and sharp curves, including two 90-degree curves. These curves severely limit the safety and mobility of motorists by blocking views and necessitating drivers to change speed several times along the route.

The purpose of this project is to identify solutions for these concerns. The project team will study potential safety and mobility improvements to this section such as adding capacity with an additional lane in each direction, adding a center median, smoothing the existing sharp curves, and providing bicycle and pedestrian accommodations. This effort may include adjusting part of FM 917 onto a new location roadway segment.
