Farm to Market Road 1462 (FM 1462) is a farm to market road located in Brazoria and Fort Bend counties, Texas.[1]

Route description[edit]

FM 1462 begins at SH 36 at the community of Damon in Brazoria County.[2] The road follows a northeasterly path, entering Fort Bend County and turning to the east. It has a junction with FM 762, which provides access to Brazos Bend State Park and the George Observatory via PR 72.[3] FM 1462 crosses over the Brazos River and returns to Brazoria County. Seven miles east of the bridge is Rosharon and the intersection of FM 521. The route then has an interchange with the SH 288 freeway. The route travels past several newer neighborhoods and subdivisions before entering Alvin and ending at an intersection with SH 35 near Alvin Community College.[1]


FM 1462 was originally designated in Brazoria County in 1949, connecting SH 288 near Rosharon to SH 35 in Alvin. The route was extended to the Brazos River crossing at the county line in 1960, and then through Fort Bend County and to SH 36 at Damon in 1961. The extension to Damon usurped the western portion of FM 762.[1]
