The project proposes widening the two-lane road to a four-lane, divided roadway with a raised median between Business 290 and Hwy. 290 and a grassy median between Hwy. 290 and Joseph Road, according to TxDOT information. The project would also realign curves on FM 1488 to improve safety.
TxDOT information states five residences, six commercial structures and four nonresidential structures would be displaced by the additional right of way needed for the project.
