Grayson County leaders gave a nod of approval to a new roadway project that will connect the area to the future extension of the Dallas North Tollway.
The city of Denison has committed $350,000 in funding toward a $7.51 million series of improvements to ramps on U.S. Highway 75 between Spur 503 and FM 691.
SHERMAN, Texas — Growing transportation needs are being met after Grayson County Commissioners approved plans for reconstruction and widening of U.S. 75. “In the next 20 years, Grayson County will be under construction,” said Grayson County Judge Bill Magers.
Grayson County commissioners are set to borrow about $10 million and then spend another $167 million from state and federal funds to make some changes to area roads. Several changes are coming to US 75 and 82 in the next two years–it’s one of two major road projects commissioners are issuing the bond to help pay for.
