FM 2493 Corridor Study:
The MPO has hired Brown and Gay Engineers (BGE) out of Dallas to conduct a corridor study for FM 2493 also known as Old Jacksonville Highway in Tyler and Houston Street in Bullard. Work on the study began in January of 2015 and is expected to take a year to complete. The study will provide recommended strategies to address items such as: traffic congestion, traffic signal locations, driveway placement, and locations of public transit bicycle and pedestrian amenities. BGE has started gathering traffic data over the 14 mile corridor length connecting Loop 323 in Tyler to Highway 69 in Bullard. The collection and evaluation of data is expected to continue through May with Public Open Houses beginning in June.
