FM 1378 is known as Country Club Road, W. Lucas Road, and Southview Drive in Lucas.  TxDOT is planning to let a project in mid 2019 with three main objectives: 1) add narrow shoulders to FM 1378, 2) improve drainage, and 3) resurface the main lanes with high-friction asphalt.  When TxDOT widened the White Rock Creek bridge just south of Forest Grove Road on FM 1378, these three objectives were accomplished north of the bridge.  This new project is six miles long from the White Rock Creek Bridge to Parker Road.  Preliminary engineering and surveying is under way for this project.

Some folks in Lucas refer to this intersection (Lucas Road/Southview Drive) as the intersection by the bait shop.  TxDOT continues to review the traffic volumes and intersection layout to determine which schematic to move forward within the environmental document.
