TxDOT Looks to Alleviate Crowded FM 60

By  | 

TxDOT officials took their vision for one crowded road to the public.

At a hearing Thursday evening at the Physicians Center, residents, property owners and others took a look at plans for FM 60 between Highway 6 and FM 158.

If approved, the road would go from two to four lanes and have a median. To make the changes along the 1.7-mile stretch would cost $12.6 million according to TxDOT, with the project lasting upwards of three years.

TxDOT officials estimate 19,000 cars will travel the already-crowded stretch each day by 2008. That's up from 2005's average of 14,200.

Few concerns about the project were voiced during the meeting. Among them was a wish for designated bike lanes.
