East Louisiana Street infrastructure improvements

The city of McKinney anticipates beginning construction on East Louisiana Street from Hwy. 5 to Murray Street; Andrews Street; and Green Street as soon as late April as a catalyst infrastructure project in east McKinney. Similar to improvements along Louisiana Street recently completed in the historic downtown McKinney area, this project will include new underground city utilities, storm drainage, street pavement, lighting and streetscape elements. The project will also add railroad crossing safety improvements and install a single-lane roundabout connecting Louisiana Street to Greenville Street immediately north of the future location of Tupps Brewery. Construction is anticipated to be substantially completed in the spring of 2023 and will include multiple phases to minimize changes to local traffic, including at Webb Elementary School.
