Farm to Market Road 363 or FM 363 is a 15.262-mile (24.562 km) farm to market road in the U.S. state of Texas.[1]

Route description[edit]

FM 363 begins at an intersection with US 96 in north Kirbyville, just inside the city limits.[2] The road travels east, roughly paralleling the Timber Rock Railroad to its south, and intersects SH 87 in Bleakwood. The eastern terminus is at US 190 near the community of Bon Wier.[3]

History[edit]

FM 363 is one of the original farm to market roads, designated in 1945 from Bleakwood eastward to the junction with US 190.[1] The western portion of the route, from US 96 to SH 87, was originally designated as SH 340 in 1941; that designation was cancelled and combined with FM 363 in 1945.[4]
