Completed project

New bike route provides pathway between Frisco and The Colony

The southwest part of Frisco now boasts a new bike route.

In March, city staff completed the new route that extends for nearly 4 miles from The Colony to the western limits of the Lone Star Ranch Neighborhood.

The new bike route connects five Frisco parks, three schools and several existing off-street trails. The route uses an existing bike lane on 4th Army Drive and added a new buffered bike lane on Timber Ridge Drive. The rest of the route uses wayfinding signs and lane markings on existing roadways to indicate the path.

Ongoing projects

Legacy Drive reconstruction

Work on Legacy Drive in Frisco is running a bit behind schedule due to outstanding franchise utility conflicts, an April public works department document stated. The goal of the project is to reconstruct Legacy’s existing lanes and widen the road from four to six lanes between SH 121 and Warren Parkway. The project is still in its first phase, which involves paving the main lanes. During this time, all traffic is switched to the southbound side so construction can take place to create the three new northbound lanes. This is expected to be completed in May. Following this, all traffic will switch to the newly created northbound lanes so work can begin on the three new southbound lanes.

Town and Country Boulevard reconstruction

Traffic has now switched to the newly made eastbound lanes of Town and Country Boulevard. Crews are now focused on reconstructing the westbound lanes of the road from Spring Creek Parkway to west of Legacy Drive. Drivers are advised to pay attention in the work zone, especially now that traffic has switched again. When finished, the project will have widened the road to four lanes that extend between Spring Creek and Legacy. Bike lanes are also expected to be incorporated into this project.
