Farm to Market Road 3504 (FM 3504) was a Farm to Market Road located entirely within the city of Lewisville, in Denton County, Texas. Starting in 1995, the highway was internally designated by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) as Urban Road 3504 (UR 3504).

Route description[edit]

Looking northward along FM 3504 from its southern terminus at SH 121 Business

FM 3504 began at an intersection with Business State Highway 121-H (Bus. SH 121-H), the former routing of SH 121 through Lewisville, just north of the Interstate 35E (I-35E) freeway. The short route traveled north along four-lane Mill Street, past a variety of older businesses and a school, before state maintenance ended just north of Main Street at an intersection with Church Street.[3] Mill Street continues north under local jurisdiction toward Lewisville Lake.[1]

History[edit]

FM 3504 was originally a spur route of FM 1171 designated in 1971; the mileage was transferred to the current route number in 1990. FM 1171 currently ends at IH 35E, but historically continued along Main and Church Streets (a pair of one-way streets) through eastern Lewisville to SH 121 (now the business route). That section of FM 1171 was removed from the state highway system in 2003, leaving FM 3504 with a northern terminus that no longer connected to the state highway system.[1][4]

In 1995, the designation of the route was internally changed to UR 3504; as with other urban roads, TxDOT continued to sign the route using the Farm Road marker. On July 10, 2012, that designation was decommissioned, and the roadway was removed from the state highway system.[2]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route was in Lewisville, Denton County.
