Farm to Market Road 2448
Location: Reeves County
Length: 6.026 mi[20] (9.698 km)
Existed: 1959[20]–present

Farm to Market Road 2448 (FM 2448) is a Farm to Market Road in the U.S. state of Texas maintained by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). The road, located in southwestern Reeves County, connects Interstate 10 (I-10) east of Balmorhea northward to State Highway 17 (SH 17) northeast of Saragosa. The road has no major intersections other than I-10 and SH 17. The road's numerical designation used to be assigned to a highway in Collin County.

FM 2448 begins at exit 212 along I-10 5.9 miles (9.5 km) east of Balmorhea. The two-lane road proceeds to the north across gentle terrain in a straight path for six miles (9.7 km) turning only to intersect SH 17 at its northern terminus northeast of Saragosa. The road has no junctions with any other state roads or highways between its endpoints, although Reeves County Road 306, which intersects FM 2448 about 1.6 miles (2.6 km) north of I-10, becomes FM 1215 one mile (1.6 km) to the west. The road provides a more direct connection between points northward on SH 17 with points eastward on I-10 than SH 17 through Saragosa that intersects I-10 two miles (3.2 km) to the west.[20][21][22][23]

FM 2448 was designated in 1956 as a route in Collin County between the former route of FM 544 and SH 121.[20] That route was added as an extension to FM 2478 in 1958,[20][24] and that portion of FM 2478 was removed from the state highway system and given to the city of Plano for maintenance in 1987.[24]

The current Reeves County route was designated in 1959.[20]

RM 2469[edit]

Ranch to Market Road 2469
Location: Irion County
Length: 22.136 mi[25] (35.624 km)

Ranch to Market Road 2469 (RM 2469) is a 22.1-mile-long (35.6 km) Ranch to Market Road that serves northern Irion County in the U.S. state of Texas.[25]

RM 2469 begins at an intersection with SH 163 approximately 12 miles (19 km) north of Barnhart.[26] The route travels to the east through unincorporated Irion County; the only intersections are with county roads.[27] RM 2469 provides access to Ketchum Mountain and the Ketchum Oil Field.[28] The highway then curves to the southeast and crosses Lopez Creek, whose source lies just south of the roadway.[29] It then enters the county seat of Mertzon along Oak Avenue, reaching its eastern terminus at US 67.[27]

RM 2469 is two lanes for its entire length. Shoulders are present only near the termini.

RM 2469 is the second Texas route to bear that number. The former route, signed as FM 2469, was designated in 1956 and connected north and east 4.5 miles from US 70 near Ogden in Cottle County. That designation was removed in 1957 and mileage was reused for the new FM 2532, which replaced the east-west portion of the route. The north-south portion of the route was removed, but became FM 2564 one year later.[25][30][31]

The current RM 2469 was established in 1958. Its eastern terminus has always been at US 67 in Mertzon. The original western terminus was 5.0 miles (8.0 km) from that point. The route was lengthened to 11.0 miles (17.7 km) in 1960 and 17.0 miles (27.4 km) in 1962. The final extension to SH 163 occurred in 1963.[25]

FM 2480[edit]

Farm to Market Road 2480
Location: Cameron County
Length: 6.814 mi[32] (10.966 km)
Existed: 1957–present

Farm to Market Road 2480 (FM 2480) is a farm to market road in Cameron County, Texas.[32]

The southern terminus of FM 2480 is in Los Fresnos at FM 1847, which provides access from the northern suburbs of Cameron County to Brownsville's central business district.[33] The route travels northeast along Old Port Road before turning to the north along San Roman Road. The FM 2480 designation ends at FM 510 in Bayview.[32][34]

FM 2480 was designated in 1957, from FM 1847 northeastward approximately 5.5 miles (8.9 km). The northern extension to FM 510 was added later that year.[32]

FM 2491[edit]

Farm to Market Road 2491
Location: McLennan County
Length: 12.8 mi (20.6 km)
Existed: 1957–present

Farm to Market Road 2491 (FM 2491) is a 12.8-mile-long (20.6 km) road in central Texas that serves McLennan County. The road begins at Loop 340, which loops in Waco. The road then goes northeast, splits into FM 2957 which eventually leads to FM 2491 ending at FM 939 between McLennan and Limestone counties.

FM 2491 was designated in 1957 from SH 6 east to a road intersection. In 1959, the road was revised to begin at Loop 232(now Loop 340).

FM 2493[edit]

Farm to Market Road 2493
Location: Cherokee, Smith Counties
Length: 21.17 mi[35] (34.07 km)
Existed: 1957–present

Farm to Market Road 2493, or FM 2493, in the eastern part of Texas (USA), is a major thoroughfare that is approximately 21 miles (34 km) in length from an intersection with FM 177 west of Mixon northwestward, then north through Bullard, Flint, Gresham, then into Tyler where it intersects US 69. The road is located in far north-central Cherokee County and south-central Smith County. As of 1995, the section of the road from Gresham to Tyler is considered an Urban Road but is still signed as a Farm to Market Road.[36]

FM 2493 has two local street names: Houston Street in Bullard and Old Jacksonville Highway in Tyler. Rural at its southern end, the road gets progressively urban as it gets closer to Tyler. FM 2493 passes by a landscape of rolling hills of trees, pastures, and farmland on the portions that have not been developed. All of FM 2493 has had two lanes and no shoulders, but parts of the road in and near Tyler are changing to a widened four-lane as traffic increases.

The original section of FM 2493, from the US 69 intersection south of Bullard, north for 16.1 miles (25.9 km) was commissioned by Minute Order in 1957, then another Minute Order added in 1962, 5.3 miles (8.5 km) more, intersecting the road with FM 177 west of Mixon. It is unclear when any part of FM 2493 was built. The road serves the three towns of Bullard, Flint, and Gresham, and the city of Tyler. The southern terminus intersection connects to FM 177, which goes east to Mixon and west to Mount Selman; while the northern terminus intersection connects to US 69, which goes south to Jacksonville, and north around downtown Tyler to Lindale and Mineola. Besides its county road intersections, FM 2493 briefly multiplexes with US 69 south of Bullard, crosses FM 344 in Bullard and FM 346 in Flint, intersects FM 2813 and crosses Loop 49 in Gresham, intersects TX 57 and crosses Loop 323 in Tyler. The only other intersections on FM 2493 are its termini at FM 177 west of Mixon and at US 69 in Tyler.

FM 2499[edit]

Farm to Market Road 2499
Location: GrapevineCorinth
Length: 13.578 mi[37] (21.852 km)
Existed: August 27, 1960–present

Farm to Market Road 2499 (FM 2499) is a FM highway located in the US state of Texas. The highway runs from State Highway 121/State Highway 26 in Grapevine (near the north entrance of D/FW Airport) to FM 2181 in Corinth.

FM 2499 begins at an interchange with State Highway 121/State Highway 26 near Grapevine Mills, just north of D/FW Airport. The highway runs about a mile east of Lake Grapevine, before entering the city of Flower Mound. FM 2499 runs through Flower Mound as Long Prairie Road south of FM 407, before becoming Village Parkway. The highway runs through Highland Village, before ending at an intersection with FM 2181 in Corinth.

The FM 2499 designation was assigned in 1957, running in Houston County. The mileage from this route was transferred to FM 1733 in 1959.[38]

The current FM 2499 was signed in 1960, running from FM 1171 south to the Denton-Tarrant county line. The highway was extended further north to FM 407 and further south to SH 121 in 1988. The entire highway was designated as Urban Route 2499 in 1995 by TxDOT. The highway was extended further north in 2010 along Village Parkway through Highland Village, ending at FM 2181 in Corinth.

The previous routing of FM2499 ran across the Grapevine Lake dam and through the lake's spillway. Due to urban growth and the inability to widen the road across the dam (plus the need, during flood incidents, to close the road across the spillway), the road was re-routed to the east in its current configuration.[citation needed]
