FM 1314 Access Management Study

TxDOT is conducting an access management study for the 12-mile segment of FM 1314 from SH 242 to State Loop (SL) 494 in Montgomery County. Within these limits, FM 1314 is a northwest-southeast corridor that has experienced increased traffic due to residential and commercial development in the area.

Current roadway conditions

The roadway sections vary throughout the corridor and consist of four-lanes undivided and four-lanes with a continuous two‐way left‐turn lane in the middle of opposing lanes of traffic. This 12-mile study segment carries approximately 17,000 vehicles per day between SH 242 and SL 494 while the heaviest used segment between Grand Parkway (SH 99) and I-69 N (Former US 59 N) carries approximately 23,000 to 36,000 vehicles per day. The segment south of the Sorters Road intersection has a higher than average crash rate compared to similar roads across the state.

In addition, FM 1314 provides key access to multiple schools, homes, retail businesses, and industrial businesses. The corridor carries anywhere between 5.2 and 8.3% heavy vehicle traffic with the Gene Campbell Blvd intersection carrying approximately 20.1% heavy vehicle traffic.

Study purpose

The purpose of the FM 1314 access management study is to provide vehicle access to neighborhoods, businesses, and community facilities in a manner that preserves the safety and efficiency of the transportation system. The FM 1314 study aims to identify short-, medium-, and long-term transportation improvements to improve safety and mobility, traffic flow, reduce motorist delay, and support existing and future development.


The proposed improvements aim to achieve several benefits, including:

  • Enhanced safety through reduction of crashes
  • Improved traffic operations by optimizing vehicle movement within the corridor
  • Reduced congestion through improved travel time
  • Enhanced accessibility and multimodal connectivity
  • Preservation of current and future economic development along the corridor
  • Alignment with future planned growth through the identification of long-term improvements

Steering Committee

The FM 1314 Steering Committee is comprised of subject matter experts from Montgomery County, the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC), North Houston Association, Greater East Montgomery County (EMC) Chamber, East Montgomery County Improvement District (EMCID), New Caney Independent School District and others. Its purpose is to guide the technical direction of the study.
