Project Overview

TxDOT is developing preliminary plans for the expansion of FM 756 from Jeff Davis Drive, south to FM 344. The scope includes expanding the existing two-lane roadway to a four-lane divided highway with a continuous left-turn lane. Proposed improvements also include an overpass and ramps at the intersection of FM 346.

Details

Enhancements to this corridor include:

  • Widening from a two-lane roadway to a four-lane roadway with a flush median
  • Redesigning roadway's alignments to meet current design standards
  • Designing a grade-separated interchange (overpass and ramps) at FM 756 and FM 346. The current proposal shows FM 756 bridging over FM 346.

This project will require the acquisition of additional right of way.

Get Involved

TxDOT hosted the first public meeting on Jan. 15, 2019. Three alternatives were presented for public comment

TxDOT hosted its second public meeting on June 25, 2019. The preferred alternative was presented to the public at this meeting. A copy of the alternative is available for viewing through the Interactive Map link below.

TxDOT plans to host a third public meeting in the form of a public hearing. the public hearing's details will be posted to this website as they become available Adjacent property owners will receive notification by mail. All interested citizens will have the opportunity to provide input, voice concerns and ask questions.

Schedule

Based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, TxDOT has suspended its in-person public involvement efforts due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The suspension will impact this project's development schedule. At this moment, the extent of the delay is unknown and dependent on future guidance. We will update this webpage as more information becomes available. Public safety is a top priority for the department. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

The project is expected to be constructed in three phases. Phase 1 extends from Jeff Davis Drive south to FM 346. Phase 2 extends from FM 346 south to FM 344 in the city of Bullard. Phase 3 involves the construction of an overpass and ramps at FM 346 and FM 756.

Next step include the following:

  • Public Hearing - fall of 2020 (tentatively)
  • Environmental Clearance - early 2021 (tentatively)
  • Right-of-Way Acquisition - summer of 2021
  • Phase 1 Construction is funded in 2022, based on current financial forecasts
  • Funding for Phases 2 and 3 has not yet been identified
