Farm to Market Road 1570, or FM 1570, is a major thoroughfare located in Hunt County, Texas, roughly along the city limits of Greenville, Texas. It is approximately 11 miles (18 km) in length and serves primarily as a route for commuters going to and from a sizeable L-3 Communications facility located at Majors Field.[1] It is signed as Jack Finney Boulevard.

The road has five lanes (four traffic lanes, plus a bidirectional left turn lane) for the approximately 5 miles (8.0 km) between US 69 and SH 34. The road has two lanes and 12' shoulders between SH 34 and SH 66. There are only 3 traffic signals on its entire length, making it the preferred route for Dallas/Fort Worth-bound commuters attempting to avoid local traffic within Greenville.
