Comments sought on proposed improvements

Paris, Texas -- The Texas Department of Transportation will host an online virtual public meeting at 5:00 p.m. July 28 to gather public input on the proposed new location roadway from CR 60 to FM 121 in Grayson County, known as the FM Spur 121 or Grayson Parkway.

A pre-recorded audio and video presentation will provide details on the proposed project. After the online presentation, residents can provide comments and input on this proposed roadway. Comments must be received by Aug. 12, 2020 to be part of the official record.

The proposed project will construct a new two-lane undivided state roadway from CR 60 near the Collin-Grayson County line northward to FM 121 west of the City of Gunter; a distance of approximately 4.5 miles. Subject to final design considerations, the proposed project would require right-of-way with no residential or commercial displacements, officials said.
