McKinney TX FM 546 Relocation
« on: October 06, 2018, 01:36:52 AM »

FM 546 being relocated at McKinney. Google Maps shows construction

It is worth noting that this would be the second relocation of this section of FM 546. It is not obvious, but it once stair-stepped using Elm and Millwood. The old curve is visible at the SW corner of those two streets. it has also been relocated twice at the airport.

I noticed that even weeks later there are still two FM 546 signs up at each intersection LOL.

I guess you are saying the new route is now open. Heck, they left up an FM 2499 sign on the old route after the new route opened in 1991. It stayed up until after 2000. There is still an FM 3504 sign up on Mill St in Lewisville even though the route was decommissioned in 2012.

Yes it's been open for a while, I commute past it every day. I took it down to the airport area and turned around - it's nice albeit nothing remarkable.
