The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) plans to widen FM 2206 – also known as Harrison Road – from two lanes to four lanes with a flush median from SH 42 east to Loop 421 in Longview. A public hearing was held on August 23, 2016 and the state has set aside $10.6 Million to widen the eastern portion of the route between Fisher Road and Loop 281. Right-of-way (ROW) acquisition for this stage of the project is set to begin in mid-2017 and construction is scheduled to begin in 2019. TxDOT spokeswoman Susan Howard has said the project would result in acquiring property from about a dozen owners.
The amount of vehicles passing down Harrison Road each day is expected to increase from about 6,500 vehicles to more than 10,000 vehicles within two decades, leading TxDOT and the Metropolitan Planning Organization to determine that expansion is necessary to improve safety by decreasing the likelihood of rear-end collisions.
