Description:

The proposed project is located along John King Boulevard from the junction of SH 204/John King Boulevard (South Goliad Street) to north of John King Boulevard (Collin County Line), a total length of approximately 7.6 miles. As a result, John King Boulevard would be re-designated as SH 205 and incorporated into the state highway system. No improvements to existing SH 205 within these limits are proposed. The project would consist of the widening of John King Boulevard to an ultimate six-lane , divided urban highway. The proposed project would require approximately 16.3 acres of new right of way and 0.7 acre of permanent easements.
