History[edit]

FM 1655 was designated in 1951 from US 81 in Alvord to a county road .5 miles south of the Montague County Line. In 1952, FM 1655 extended south and west to SH 24/SH 114(now SH 101)in Chico, replacing FM 1881, which went from SH 24/SH 114 east 4 miles. In 1960, FM 1655 extended northeast to FM 455. In 1961, SH 24 and SH 114 were relocated in Chico, causing FM 1655 to lose .2 miles. In 1963, the section of FM 1655 from FM 1810 to SH 24/114 was transferred to FM 1810, and the section of FM 1810 from what was then FM 2403 to SH 24( now US 380) was transferred to FM 1655.
