PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND EXHIBITS

You may click on any of the project exhibits below to view them at full size.

The proposed project includes the construction of a new location realignment for US 380 from CR 560 to CR 699 (Hunt County Line), south of the City of Farmersville, in Collin County for a distance of approximately 8.5 miles.

 

 

The existing US 380 roadway includes four 12-foot wide lanes, a 16-foot wide two-way left turn lane, limited sidewalks and no bicycle accommodations and an existing right-of-way varying from 120 to 180 feet wide. The existing US 380 roadway would remain.

 

 

The new location facility would be constructed as a four-lane divided facility with 12-foot lanes and 10-foot shoulders with additional auxiliary lanes as needed. The proposed project would also include two continuous, one-way frontage roads with 12-foot lanes and a 10-foot shared use path on both sides of the roadway. The proposed project is located south of the City of Farmersville, in Collin County.

 

 

The proposed new location alignment recommended by the feasibility study was slightly adjusted based on stakeholder meetings held in late 2020. The figure below shows the alignment recommended by the feasibility study in magenta, and the new proposed new location alignment in yellow. The project design will be further refined as the study progresses.
