A Texas Department of Transportation project to construct a railroad overpass on FM 1774 from FM 1486 to 0.109 miles north of FM 1488 was supposed to be complete in the third quarter of 2019, but completion has been delayed to the first quarter of 2020 due to weather and increased traffic in the area from the Texas Renaissance Festival and holiday travelers, according to TxDOT Public Information Officer Emily Black. The project was 98% complete as of mid-November, and lanes were opened to drivers in October.
