TxDOT is initiating an EIS for a proposed project to construct the Spur 399 Extension in Collin County from US 75 south of McKinney to US 380 east of McKinney. Alignments for a roadway facility on new location are under study. The study area for the proposed project includes the cities of McKinney, Fairview, Lowry Crossing and New Hope. In this EIS, TxDOT will evaluation the portion of the recommended alignment on new location on the west side of McKinney National Airport 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 proposed Spur 399 would accommodate an eight-lane freeway with frontage roads on each side to manage congestion and north-south mobility, connectivity, traffic operations and safety.
