Collin County Commissioners discuss US 380 alignment options

1

With a decision about US 380 on the near horizon, many entities are selecting their preferred alignment options for the road project.

Collin County Commissioner Darrell Hale presented a resolution to commissioners at an April 15 meeting. The resolution supports the Texas Department of Transportation’s green alignment, which would run through Princeton, Lowry Crossing, McKinney, Prosper and Frisco on US 380’s current alignment.

Some commissioners said they support the green alignment, however commissioners agreed to wait to pass a resolution until the city of McKinney or TxDOT selects a preferred alignment.

The resolution presented to commissioners was tabled to a later date. County Judge Chris Hill said through today’s discussion, people can see where the commissioners stand on the issue even though a vote was not taken.

Below is a copy of the proposed resolution.



Resolution of Collin County Commissioners Court Proposed April 15 (Text)

McKinney City Council is expected to discuss US 380 alignments during a regularly scheduled meeting April 16. Mayor George Fuller said discussions will take place during executive session because TxDOT asked council to keep some information confidential until it is presented to the public.

In May TxDOT officials are expected to select one alignment for US 380 in Collin County. The first of three meetings will take place May 6 in McKinney.

  1. The article states that the court supported the green alignment throughout (it included Princeton and Lowry Crossing which are clearly east of FM 1827. The included resolution seems to only address the McKinney area (between Coit and FM 1827).
