Farm to Market Road 2514 (FM 2514) is a farm to market road in Collin County, Texas.[1]

Route description[edit]

The western terminus of FM 2514 is at the PlanoParker city line; the continuation into Plano is known appropriately as Parker Road.[2] The route travels east through Parker and Saint Paul before turning southward into Wylie.[3] The route ends at SH 78 in central Wylie.[1]

History[edit]

An unrelated route numbered FM 2514 was designation on October 31, 1957 in Robertson County from FM 2293 5 miles north of Owensville northeast to SH 7. That mileage was canceled on December 31, 1959 and transferred to FM 979.[1][4]

The current FM 2514 was designated from Plano to Parker on September 25, 1960, from SH 5 (the old routing of US 75) to FM 2551. It was extended to Wylie, to an intersection with FM 544 (later FM 3412), on June 1, 1965. The western terminus was truncated to the Plano city limits on October 28, 1987, when SH 5 and other state-maintained highways were removed from the highway system and returned to the city of Plano's jurisdiction.[1][5] The route in Wylie was extended to SH 78 in 2009, replacing FM 3412 (which the section from FM 1378 to FM 2514 was given to the city of Wylie on November 20, 2008).[6] On March 27, 2014, the section from Brown Street (former FM 3412) to SH 78 was removed from the state highway system.[1]

The internal designation was changed to Urban Road 2514 (UR 2514) on June 27, 1995, but was changed back to FM 2514 on November 15, 2018.[7][8]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Collin County.

  2. ^ a b Although traveling south–north in Wylie, the route is signed west–east.
