GRAYSON COUNTY, Tex. -- TXDOT crews in Grayson County are in the process of widening FM 1417. Crews are moving utilities so the contractor can begin the project.

TXDOT engineers plan to widen the stretch of road between Highways 691 and 120, adding two 10 ft. shoulders and four lanes in some parts.

The design also allows crews to widen the entire section to four lanes as the area grows in the future.

"This farm to market road was an old county road that had been designed several decades ago, and now we're trying to bring this roadway up to the current standards," says Noel Paramanantham with the Texas Department of Transportation

Engineers expect the project to be finished in January 2009.
