Bike lanes will be added to Town & Country Boulevard as part of the road’s widening project. These are the first bike lanes from the city’s latest hike and bike master plan, which was approved in August.

Frisco City Council gave the OK for the engineering department to finish designing Town & Country with the bike lanes during the Nov. 5 meeting. According to city documents, the roadway’s design has been on hold while the master plan was being finalized.


The road will be widened to four lanes from west of Legacy Drive to Spring Creek Parkway. The estimated cost for widening the road is $3.9 million. Adding the bike lanes is estimated to cost $130,000 more, said Paul Knippel, engineering and public works director.
