US 82 safety improvement feasibility study

Project overview

TxDOT is conducting a US 82 Safety Improvement Feasibility Study to improve US 82 study corridor safety and mobility. The study corridor limits extend 18 miles from the Cooke County Line to FM 1417 in Grayson County, Texas.


The US 82 study corridor experienced a total of 445 crashes over a five-year period from 2014 to 2018. Approximately 22 percent of those crashes were severe resulting in either a fatality or injury. This percentage of severe crashes is higher than the rural statewide average for similar type roadways. As a result, TxDOT is conducting this feasibility study to develop phased transportation solutions at a planning level of detail to improve US 82 study corridor safety and mobility.

These solutions are intended to:

  • Enhance corridor safety by making improvements to decrease the likelihood of crashes
  • Improve localized intersection and interchange safety, mobility and operations
  • Provide consistency with the Texas Freight Mobility Plan 2018 as this section of US 82 is identified as part of the Texas Highway Freight Network


The study began in the summer of 2019 and will be complete in January 2020. Open Houses will be conducted in December 2019 to provide the public an opportunity to review, discuss and provide input on the study results and the proposed phased transportation solutions.
