Virtual Public Scoping Meeting
Spur 399 Extension From US 75 to US 380

February 23 to March 10, 2021

ABOUT

Given the unique circumstances of the COVID-19 outbreak,

along with TxDOT's commitment to protect public health during this pandemic, the Texas Department of Transportation is conducting Virtual Public Scoping Meetings until further notice to avoid in-person contact. At this time, the virtual format is being held in lieu of an in-person Public Scoping Meeting. This presentation will cover the same information that the Dallas District would have shared at the in-person Public Scoping Meeting. However, the comment process will be different. Details on how to submit a comment and how to have your questions addressed will be covered in the Virtual Meeting Room and can also be found in the Provide Input section.

The following sections will guide you through different components of the study.

  • Paper copies of the presentation and information presented in this Virtual Public Scoping Meeting and comment forms can also be accessed in the Meeting Materials section
  • For ADA accommodation

TxDOT continues to try and develop the least impactful alternative possible for this project, however this is a challenge due to the many constraints  

Project Development:

Where We've Been

2016  Collin County identified US 380 as a priority project for a Limited Access Roadway study.  The location is not specified.
2017-2020  TxDOT Feasibility Study recommended an  alignment for a freeway across Collin County.
TxDOT begins the US 380 from Coit Road to FM 1827 Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Schematic Design Project.

The Feasibility Study:

Highlights (2016-2020)

Information icon
Developed new location alignments that could draw traffic away from US 380 and other congested roadways while also addressing the area's growth
Checkmark icon
Discovered there could be a benefit to providing another north-south connection in addition to US 75 and SH 5
Other modes such as transit, bicycle, and pedestrian travel were determined to be unable to independently relieve traffic congestion
Determined that constructing a freeway was the best option that meets study criteria
Coordinated with stakeholders representing municipalities, McKinney National Airport, Collin County, NorthTexas Municipal Water District, and Encore Wire
18k comments received about US 380
Received over 18,000 public comments - the majority were supportive of a freeway, however many concerns were expressed about locations of proposed alignments
