At a public meeting Nov. 27, Texas Department of Transportation officials presented proposed improvements along Hwy. 5 through McKinney at an open house-style meeting.
Proposed improvements include widening the existing two-lane road to a four-lane divided highway from FM 1378 to Spur 399 and from Powerhouse Street to SH 121. TxDOT also proposed widening Hwy. 5 from the existing four-lane roadway to a six-lane divided highway from Spur 399 to Industrial Boulevard.
Construction on the project, estimated to total $135 million, is expected to be done in phases beginning in 2021.
