Here are three ongoing transportation projects to watch for this March in Frisco.

Coit Road

Crews are excavating the northbound median in preparation for adding the third northbound lane on Coit Road from Main Street to Buckeye Drive, the March report from the city’s public works and engineering services stated. The project started in mid-January.

The project will widen the existing lanes of Coit Road from four to six lanes and is expected to last into late 2022.

Construction of the Coit Road widening project from SH 121 to Main Street is almost complete. That project on Coit Road also consisted of widening the existing lanes from four to six.

New northbound lanes on Legacy Drive are being paved, according to the report. The paving process will continue through April, said Engineering Director Paul Knippel.

Traffic flow will switch to the new northbound lanes once they are complete, according to Knippel. The city is expected to begin work on new southbound lanes this spring.
