Description:

The purpose of the proposed project is to provide a facility that would accommodate expanding transportation demands resulting from population growth and economic development in the region; increase mobility and accessibility in the region; and to provide an east-west transportation facility to serve the communities in the project area. The proposed project includes the reconstruction and widening of FM 1461 from SH 289 to County Road 123. The proposed project is located in Collin County, surrounded by communities of McKinney, Prosper, and Celina. Proposed improvements would involve the expansion from a two-lane rural highway to a four-lane urban highway. Expansion would consist of one 12-foot wide travel lane and one 14-foot wide outside shared-use lane in each direction, a proposed median to accommodate future ultimate six-lane facility, and sidewalks located along the outside of both the eastbound and westbound lanes. The existing right-of-way (ROW) width is 90 feet and will increase with the proposed project. The proposed ROW is anticipated to acquire approximately 58 acres to expand the roadway, based on this preliminary level of design. No residential or non-residential displacements are anticipated.
