Farm to Market Road 2393 (FM 2393) is a farm to market road that connects the farming, residential, and recreational areas of western Clay County, Texas.[1]

Route description[edit]

FM 2393 is a two-lane road for its entire length. The route begins to the north of Lake Arrowhead and Lake Arrowhead State Park at an intersection with FM 1954. Traveling to the east, it meets FM 1954 for the second time, as that route forms a loop to the park.[2][3] Past this intersection, FM 2393 turns more to the north. It crosses US 82 / US 287 in Jolly followed by SH 79 in Dean. The route then travels in a northwesterly direction before terminating at FM 171 in the unincorporated community of Thornberry.[4][1]

History[edit]

FM 2393 was designated in 1957, connecting Dean to Jolly. The northern extension from Dean to Thornberry was designated in 1967, replacing Farm to Market Road 2715.[5] The southern section from Jolly to FM 1954 was added to the state highway system in 1973.[1]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Clay County.
