The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is proposing to widen FM 1387 from North Midlothian Parkway to FM 664 in Ellis County, Texas. The FM 1387 reconstruction project includes widening approximately 5.7 miles of FM 1387.  The typical proposed right-of-way (ROW) would be approximately 140 feet wide, with the minimum and maximum ROW width ranging from 120 feet to 300 feet, respectively. The proposed project involves the full reconstruction of the existing two-lane rural roadway to a four-lane urban roadway (ultimately six lanes) with turn lanes. Two alternatives are being considered from Long Branch Road to FM 664, one to the north that follows the existing FM 1387 alignment, and one that extends east from Long Branch Road to FM 664 south of Legacy Estates.  The proposed project passes through the cities of Midlothian and Waxahachie.
