At the meetings, TxDOT will present one proposed alignment and gain resident feedback. All meetings will be held in an open house format, with a presentation each night, starting at 6 p.m., according to a TxDOT news release. The same information will be given at all three meetings.
Public meetings will be held in McKinney, Princeton and Prosper:
- May 6 from 6-8 p.m. at Russell A Steindam Courts Building, 2100 Bloomdale Road, McKinney
- May 7 from 6-8 p.m. at Princeton High School, 1000 E. Princeton Drive, Princeton
- May 9 from 6-8 p.m. at Lorene Rogers Middle School, 1001 Coit Road, Prosper
Conversations about the roadway began in April 2018 when TxDOT presented five proposed alignments for US 380 through Collin County. The proposed alignments were narrowed to two in October.
In March 2019, residents learned about two new proposed segments of US 380 in Collin County.
One of the two proposed alignments 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.
No final decision has been made about US 380. TxDOT is working to speed up the process but needed to look at these two new options and give people a chance to voice their opinions, TxDOT Public Information Officer Ryan LaFontaine said in a previous interview with Community Impact Newspaper. All options, including alignments presented in October, are still on the table. TxDOT could also decide not to do anything about the roadway, according to TxDOT officials.
Editor's note: This article has been updated to provide more information about the meetings. TxDOT officials said they will present one proposed alignment at the meetings in May.
