TxDOT is initiating an EIS for a proposed project to improve US 380 in Collin County from Coit Road west of McKinney in the Prosper/Frisco area to FM 1827 east of McKinney. Improvements along the existing US 380 alignment and alignments for a roadway facility on new location around the north side of McKinney are under study. The study area for the proposed project includes the cities of McKinney, Prosper and Frisco and adjacent areas within central Collin County, Texas. In this EIS, TxDOT will evaluation the portion of the recommended alignment on new location around McKinney in addition to other alternatives that satisfy the purpose and need within the study area. Alignments will be evaluated in consideration of input received from federal, state and local agencies as well as stakeholder groups and the public. The improved US 380 would accommodate an eight-lane freeway with frontage roads on each side to manage congestion and east-west mobility, connectivity, traffic operations and safety.
