The Southwest Taylor Improvements include projects located near the new Samsung factory and are part of the County’s Long-Range Transportation Plan, which is intended to plan for current and future growth by maintaining a high level of safety, mobility, and quality of life for residents and communities.
CR 401 Reconstruction and Extension - This project will tie CR 401 into US 79 and expand the existing two-lane CR 401 to a four-lane roadway to provide more capacity for vehicles to safely travel in the area. The project also includes plans for installing a traffic signal at the intersection.
FM 973 at CR 404 - This project includes work at the intersection of FM 973 and CR 404 which will widen both roads to be three lanes; one lane in each direction with a center turn lane. The project also includes plans for installing a traffic signal at the intersection when traffic warrants.
Future County Road - This project will construct a four-lane road to reduce curves on CR 404 and increase safety. The roadway will connect FM 3349 to FM 973. The interim roadway will be completed in segments. Segment 1 will connect CR 404 to FM 973 and Segment 2 will connect FM 3349 to CR 404.
