Farm to Market Road 122 (FM 122) is a short farm-to-market road in Ralls, Texas.[1]

Route description[edit]

The western terminus of FM 122 is at an intersection with SH 207. The route travels east along Tilford Avenue.[1] The FM 122 designation and state maintenance end at an intersection with Avenue G; at this point, the roadway turns from pavement to brick.[2][3]

History[edit]

FM 122 was originally designated in 1945, as a much longer north–south route that replaced a section of SH 207 from Ralls southward to Caprock. Another segment was added later that year, from Post to the north approximately 8 miles, creating a gap in the route's mileage. The FM 122 designation was applied to the roadway between Post and Caprock in 1949, removing the gap. In 1958, a spur was designated in Ralls. This spur is currently what remains of FM 122; the portion from Ralls to Post was redesignated as part of SH 207 as a part of that route's lengthening in 1967.[1][4]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Ralls, Crosby County.
