FM 455 In Montague Co. Set for Expansion

Posted: Updated:

The Texas Transportation Commission is pledging $3.4 million to expand FM 455 in Montague County.

The project will overlay the existing highway and add three foot shoulders to the road.

"As Texas roadways become increasingly crowded, we must find ways to relieve congestion without compromising safety," said Phil Wilson, TxDOT executive director. "Keeping travelers moving safely and efficiently will continue to be an ongoing priority as Texas welcomes nearly 1,000 newcomers each day."

The project will be about 14 miles long from the City of Montague to Forestburg.

Construction is expected to start sometime this summer. It should be done within a year.
