Work to redevelop Frisco’s Rail District is moving forward.

The gist

Frisco City Council members unanimously approved a $19.94 million construction bid for services related to Main Street construction—a projected two-year project—during a May 7 meeting.

Construction will include improving the roadway, widening and improving the sidewalks, removing on-street parking, traffic signal updates, additional street lighting, landscaping work, irrigation work and more, according to meeting documents.

The contract marks a major milestone in the downtown redevelopment project, Engineering Services Director Jason Brodigan said.

“It’s going to be a great project,” Brodigan said.

An official groundbreaking will take place June 7, he said.

In case you missed it

Main Street alone is expected to go through multiple waves of construction, including temporary lane closures, until it finishes in April 2026. Work to build the parking garage and plaza space will also take place around the same time.

Rail District construction is scheduled to finish just before summer 2026 and ahead of the 2026 FIFA World Cup.
