What we reported: In April the Texas Department of Transportation presented five proposed alignments for US 380 through Collin County. The proposed alignments were narrowed to two in October. One proposed alignment runs along US 380’s current alignment. The other loops around the southern end of Farmersville, the northern end of Princeton, south of New Hope, through the north end of McKinney and realigns with the current US 380 either between Lake Forest Drive and Custer Road in McKinney, or west of Custer in Prosper.
In November, Collin County voters approved a bond with $600 million being used for highways. Former county Judge Keith Self said a “major chunk” of the bond would jump-start work on US 380.
The latest: TxDOT officials expect to choose an alignment by early 2019. A cost estimate for the project will be available once an alignment is selected.
