FANNIN COUNTY, Tex. -- If you're passing through the Fannin County area, you might want to take a new route. FM 87 opened Friday morning.

The new stretch is located right off of U.S. Highway 82, just west of Bonham not far from the state prison.

At the ribbon cutting ceremony Friday morning, Fannin County officials talked about how this new road, which will connect to Highway 56 on the west side of Bonham, will impact the economy.

"Back in the Sixties when we landed on the moon, we talked about a small step for mankind, a giant leap. That's what this is- a small distance but a giant leap for Fannin County,” Judge Butch Henderson said.

The project took about six years to complete.
