TxDOT is developing preliminary plans for the expansion of FM 756 from Jeff Davis Drive south to FM 344.

TxDOT and its consultants are in the initial stages of project development. The team is currently conducting field visits and identifying viable alternatives. Once the alternatives are defined, a public meeting will be scheduled to present the options. The alternatives will also be posted to this webpage. For a project this size, the preliminary engineering development will take approximately two years. TxDOT started working on the project in November 2017.
TxDOT will host a number of meetings in an effort to engage the public. Adjacent property owners and other interested citizens will have a chance to provide input, voice concerns and ask questions. The first public meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, November 13. All interested parties are invited to attend this meeting, gather information and provide feedback.
