Collin County commissioners approved a $60 million interlocal agreement for the McKinney National Airport Runway Extension and Panther Creek Parkway projects.

The projects are part of a greater US 380 project plan, according to a Feb. 5 agenda.

The details

The commissioners approved an interlocal agreement between the county, the Regional Transportation Council and the North Central Texas Council of Governments involving the roads as a greater US 380 funding strategy during a Feb. 5 commissioner meeting.

The $30 million for the McKinney project comes from regional toll revenue.

The runway extension project is half of a greater $60 million approval, which also included $30 million for the Panther Creek project, according to the agenda. Funding for the Panther Creek project comes from federal surface transportation block grant funds.

The item was included on the consent agenda, so there was no discussion.

The background

The Panther Creek Parkway project will construct a six-lane roadway from Dallas North Tollway to Preston Road in Frisco, according to the Frisco Capital Improvement website. The project is in the design phase, and construction will be complete by the end of 2025.

McKinney’s runway expansion project is underway, and the runway will be extended by 1,500 feet. It is estimated to be completed later this year.
