The Regional Transportation Council will consider a funding swap with Collin County during a Nov. 9 meeting, according to the agenda.

In a nutshell

Staff from the North Central Texas Council of Governments are proposing RTC members approve a funding partnership with the county. If approved, the RTC would commit $60 million in federal funds to the US 380 project.

In return, the county would send $60 million that was already committed to US 380. Those funds would be added to the RTC's local fund for use on other projects.

This is not the first time the RTC has considered a funding swap with Collin County. In 2020, RTC members approved $60 million for two projects in Frisco and McKinney, according to the agenda.

Collin County committed $60 million to US 380 to replace the federal funds redirected to the Frisco and McKinney projects. Collin County’s bond program funds were otherwise ineligible to contribute to those two projects.

Get involved

The RTC will meet at 1 p.m. Nov. 9 at 616 Six Flags Drive in Arlington. A livestream of the meeting is accessible via the council’s website.
