Part of Main Street’s widening project in Frisco ahead of schedule

1

A portion of the Main Street widening project is ahead of schedule.

The section between Kentland Drive and Teel Parkway currently has both eastbound and westbound traffic sharing the southern half of the road. But westbound traffic is expected to move back to the northern half of the road by April 6, which is about 30 days ahead of schedule, Frisco Engineering Director Paul Knippel said during the April 2 Frisco City Council meeting.

Main is being widened to six lanes between FM 423 and Dallas Parkway. The project has been under construction since October 2017.

The project, which is projected to be complete in June, includes installing water lines and underground power lines.

  1. Hi Lindsey ! Great article! My wife and I are trying to argue our property tax assessment down since we back to Main Street in the Westfalls Village (Shady Shore) area. (Meredith was one of the key players in getting the lines buried. She’s a realtor and she got a ton of money from the Texas Association of Realtors to help fight Brazos.) I was wondering if you could find statistics on how much traffic Main Street will experience before and after the widening. Would appreciate a response as soon as you can since we’re scheduled to present our case on May 23. Thank you for anything you can do to help. I’m still looking online, but I’m not finding what I need. Keep up the good work, Shorthorn!
