Five bids for a project to reconstruct Meadow Hill Drive were reviewed by Frisco officials but ultimately rejected to allow the city to adjust project plans.

Frisco City Council members rejected the bids in their Jan. 4 meeting. City staff wanted to incorporate further refinements “to provide traffic calming to induce lower speeds along the roadway,” according to city documents.


“This will take specific design efforts that [are] best done prior to being underway with reconstruction instead of during reconstruction,” a memo stated. “Therefore, the bids are being rejected.”

The $3.3 million project includes adding a 5-foot sidewalk along the north side of the roadway. The west side of the intersection of Meadow Hill and Preston will also be reconstructed to include new turn lanes and traffic signal modifications.

Meadow Hill Drive from Rogers to Preston roads is expected to be under construction for 10 months. A November report from Public Works & Engineering Services said the project would start in January.
