The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), as the lead agency in conjunction with the County of Collin,
Cities of Celina, McKinney and Prosper are proposing to widen a distance of 7.04 mile of FM 1461 from SH
289 to County Road 123 in Collin County, Texas. This notice advises the public that TxDOT will be conducting a
public meeting on the proposed project. The meeting will be held on Tuesday April 24, 2018 at Rhea’s Mill
Baptist Church, 5733 N. Custer Rd, McKinney, Texas 75071. The meeting will be held in an open house format
from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The purpose of the meeting is to present the planned improvements and to
receive public comment on the proposed project.

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 45 acres to expand the roadway, based on this preliminary level of design. No
residential or non-residential displacements are anticipated.
