Here are two ongoing transportation projects to watch for this December and one upcoming project starting in 2022 in Frisco.

ONGOING PROJECTS

1. Town and Country Boulevard widening

The city of Frisco is working on a project that will widen Town and Country Boulevard from Spring Creek Parkway to Legacy Drive. The project is underway and on schedule, per the city of Frisco’s November Public Works & Engineering Services report. As of early November, the contractor was working on the road subgrade to prepare it for concrete paving. The storm sewer on the south side of the road has already been installed, the report stated.

Timeline: April 2021-March 2022


Cost: $4.7 million

Funding source: city of Frisco

2. Coit Road widening

Crews are widening Coit Road from four to six lanes between A SH 121 and Main Street. Widening of the bridge deck in this area is now complete, and the contractor is now able to focus on a few items beneath and to the sides of the bridges. Striping along the roadway has been completed, and all lanes of traffic were opened in early November, except for small areas where median work is taking place. Another phase of the project includes widening B Coit Road from Main to Buckeye Drive. The design of this portion of this project has been completed. When work begins, crews will increase the roadway from four to six lanes. Bids for the project were opened in mid-November.

Timeline: December 2020-early 2022

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

Funding source: city of Frisco

UPCOMING PROJECTS

3. Meadow Hill Drive reconstruction

A project to reconstruct Meadow Hill Drive is expected to begin construction in January. The timing is intentional to help avoid disruption to resident access during the holiday season, per the city of Frisco’s November Public Works & Engineering Services report. Meadow Hill Drive from Rogers Road to Preston Road is expected to be under construction for 10 months. The 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. A new water line will be installed prior to the construction of the north side of the road and sidewalk, the report stated.

Timeline: January-October 2022

Cost: $3.3 million
