Collin County Outer Loop right-of-way acquisitions could take 3 years


During Monday night’s Commissioner’s Court meeting, engineering firms CH2M and Brown & Gay presented a proposed realignment of the Collin County Outer Loop between US 75 and Preston Road.

No vote was made for or against the proposed realignment but Jeff Durham, special projects manager for Collin County, said obtaining the right-of-way for the project could take three to four years and is contingent on funding from county commissioners.

The commissioners budgeted some money to acquire the ROW but only a fraction of what is going to be needed, he said.

The county will review all public comments on the proposed realignment then present it to commissioners for a vote. There is no timeline as to when commissioners will vote for or against the realignment.

Durham also said a surveyor will appraise the affected land. This process will take several months. It could be nine months or longer before the county starts making offers to landowners, he said.
