5.46 Miles of US 287 runs through the city of Mansfield. The development of 287 is an important corridor to the manufacturing and industrial community, as it provides a clear connection of I-45 with the western areas of the region. Travel along the corridor is hindered in many places with single lane traffic in each direction.
A public hearing was held by TxDOT on October 17, 2013. This hearing discussed SH360 while including talks of US 287. TxDOT presented information that shows US 287 exist as a two lane on both sides while the proposed will increase traffic flow by adding an extra 2 lanes for both directions.
