Ongoing project

1. Coit Road widening

Crews are widening Coit Road from four to six lanes between SH 121 and Main Street. Construction is homing in on the bridge widening near Lyndhurst Drive, and the bridge deck has been poured. Crews will next construct a traffic rail for the bridge. A crew has been through to finish applying striping and reflectors to Coit’s pavement. Upon completion of this step, all six lanes will be opened to traffic with intermittent inside lane closures to complete median work.

Timeline: December 2020-early 2022

Cost: $7.2 million (from SH 121 to Main)


Funding source: city of Frisco

Upcoming project

2. Lebanon Road widening

Frisco staff are preparing a professional service agreement for the Lebanon Road project. This project will widen about 16,800 linear feet of A) Lebanon Road from FM 423 to Todd Drive, per the city’s public engineering department monthly report. This will transform Lebanon from a four-lane divided roadway to a six-lane divided roadway. The project will also widen about 150 linear feet of B) Rock Creek Lane on the north side of Lebanon from two to three lanes. Left and right turn lanes will be added throughout the project limits to help improve mobility and safety, the report stated. Construction is expected to start in early 2023.

Timeline: spring 2023-2024

Cost: $11 million

Funding source: city of Frisco

Regional projects

3. Custer Road widening

Crews are working to widen FM 2478, also known as Custer Road, from two lanes to a four-lane divided roadway, with capacity to eventually expand to six lanes. Plans also include realigning the intersection at FM 1461. Crews are currently working on the pavement of the Wilson Creek Bridge, including pouring concrete. This work should continue for the next few weeks.

Timeline: January 2021-December 2022

Cost: $28 million

Funding source: Texas Department of Transportation

4. US 380 landscape enhancements

Work on US 380 to provide landscape enhancements and additional rights-of-way have been put on hold, according to Patrick Clarke, a TxDOT spokesperson. There have been some unexpected site issues because US 380 splits McKinney, Frisco and Prosper, he said. There were some irrigation issues that had to be worked out with the cities, Clarke said. This has led to halting the project on US 380 while all of this is determined, he said. However, as of this publication’s press time, work was expected to begin again by the end of October.

Timeline: October 2021-TBD

Cost: $1.1 million

Funding source: TxDOT
