Farm to Market Road 1417 (FM 1417) is a FM highway that exists in two disconnected sections. The highway serves as a quasi beltway for the Sherman-Denison metropolitan area. The entire route is internally designated by TxDOT as Urban Road 1417 (UR 1417).[4]

Route description[edit]

Eastern leg[edit]

FM 1417 begins at an interchange with US 82 in the easternmost part of Sherman. The highway leaves the city limits just south of here, running in unincorporated Grayson County. FM 1417 ends at an intersection with State Highway 56.

Western leg[edit]

The "main" section of FM 1417 begins at an intersection with State Highway 11 southeast of Sherman. The highway enters the city's southside, intersecting US 75. At Old Dorchester Road, FM 1417 turns to the north, running along the western edge of Sherman. The highway sees slightly more development along its route, interchanging with State Highway 56. Between SH 56 and US 82, FM 1417 runs near many housing developments on the city's westside. North of US 82 the highway briefly enters Denison, running just east of North Texas Regional Airport and Grayson County College. FM 1417 reenters Denison, ending at FM 120 just east of Pottsboro.

History[edit]

The FM 1417 designation was previously assigned to a road in Tyler County on July 14, 1949. It was designated to go from US 69 in US 69 southeastward 6 miles. On November 20, 1951, FM 1417 extended southeast 4.8 miles to a road intersection. On January 29, 1953, FM 1417 was cancelled and mileage was transferred to an extension of FM 256.[5] The current FM 1417 was first designated on October 31, 1958, running from US 75 to FM 120. On June 28, 1963, an extension to what is now SH 56 was designated. This extension was never constructed. On July 31, 1972, FM 1417 was extended north to US 82. On June 27, 1995, FM 1417 was redesignated as an urban road.[6]
