TxDOT is planning major expansions to SH 205 which are set to affect hundreds of landowner in Collin, Rockwall, and Kaufman Counties. The expansions to SH 205 will span from US 80 to SH 78, roughly 25 miles, and is split into 7 segments. To accommodate the increasing traffic in Rockwall County, the expansions include changing the part of the two-lane highway to a six-lane and replacing two bridges.
Numerous landowners will be affected by the Right of Way expanding from 80-100ft to 110ft, and the project expects this expanded ROW to take 6.10 additional acres. TxDOT has begun right-of-way acquisition for the southernmost expansion point of SH 205 in the city of Terrell.
