Farm to Market Road 1000 or FM 1000 is a state funded road in Titus County, Texas east of Mount Pleasant. It connects US 67 at its northern terminus in Cookville to SH 49 at the south end.

Route description[edit]

FM 1000 begins at an intersection with SH 49 in Titus County, heading east on a two-lane undivided road. The road passes through areas of farms and woods with some homes, winding to the east. The highway makes a turn to the north and runs through more agricultural areas with some patches of woodland and residences. FM 1000 crosses a Union Pacific railroad line and enters the community of Cookville, heading northwest past a few homes and businesses, ending at US 67.[1][2][3]

History[edit]

FM 1000 was first designated onto its current alignment in 1948. In 2001, the route was proposed to extend west from SH 49 to an intersection with US 271. The proposed extension of FM 1000 was extended further west in 2008 to reflect a planned relocation of US 271. In 2013, the section from US 271 to FM 1735 was redesignated as FM 4000 and the section from FM 1735 to SH 49 was removed from the state highway system due to change in the project scope.[1][4]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Titus County.
