Farm to Market Road 2514 (FM 2514) is a farm to market road in Collin County, Texas.[1]

Route description[edit]

The western terminus of FM 2514 is at the PlanoParker city line; the continuation into Plano is known appropriately as Parker Road.[2] The route travels east through Parker and Saint Paul before turning southward into Wylie.[3] The route ends at SH 78 in central Wylie.[1]

History[edit]

An unrelated route numbered FM 2514 was designation in 1957 in Robertson County from FM 2293 northeast to SH 7. That mileage was canceled in 1960 and transferred to FM 979.[1]

The current FM 2514 was designated from Plano to Parker in 1960, from SH 5 (the old routing of US 75) to FM 2551. It was extended to Wylie, to an intersection with FM 544, in 1965. The western terminus was truncated to the Plano city limits in 1988, when SH 5 and other state-maintained highways were removed from the highway system and returned to the city of Plano's jurisdiction.[1][4] The route in Wylie was extended to SH 78 in 2009, replacing a portion of FM 3412. In 2014, the section from Brown Street(former FM 3412) to SH 78 was removed from the state highway system.[citation needed]

The internal designation was changed to Urban Road 2514 (UR 2514) in 1995. As is the case with other such urban roads, signage retains the Farm Road marker.[5]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Collin County.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ a b The certified length given is shorter than the actual mileage, as the TxDOT description of FM 2514 considers it to be discontinuous at rather than concurrent with FM 2551 and FM 1378.
  2. ^ a b Although traveling south–north in Wylie, the route is signed west–east.
