FM 360 is a two-lane highway for its entire length. The road starts at a traffic signal on SH 36 in Needville and is concurrent with Main Street. After going 0.4 miles (0.6 km) to the northwest, FM 360 comes to a traffic signal at FM 1236, which is also called School Street. Between SH 36 and School Street, the highway passes a church, homes, businesses, and the municipal offices. For seven more blocks after School Street, FM 360 goes through a residential part of Needville. After an open space, the highway passes a few more residential streets before entering the countryside. FM 360 continues straight to the northeast, without so much as a jog, until it approaches the I-69/US 59 overpass southwest of Beasley. In this long stretch, FM 360 intersects with the following section-line roads at right angles, in order: Williams School, Brinkmeyer, Modena-School, Wernecke and Vincik-Ehlert Roads. In the last hundred yards, the highway bends to the north, passes under I-69/US 59 and meets Loop 540 on the other side. I-69/US 59 is accessible to the northeast and southwest via entrance ramps.
FM 360 was originally designated on June 18, 1945, to start at SH 36 in Needville, run 8 miles (12.9 km) to the northeast and end at US 59. On March 29, 1953 a 0.56 miles (0.90 km) long spur connection between FM 360 and SH 36 along School Street was added to the state highway system. On October 31, 1958, the spur connection was transferred to FM 1236.
The entire highway is in Fort Bend County.
