Collin County Strategic Roadway Plan (CCSRP)

Study Overview

As part of the Strategic Corridor Initiatives identified in the Unified Planning Work Program, NCTCOG staff is assisting Collin County with developing this comprehensive planning process to identify major transportation needs that may improve mobility and accommodate future growth in the area east of the US 75 corridor.  As previously identified in Mobility 2040: The Metropolitan Transportation Plan for North Central Texas, the CCSRP planning process will evaluate possible north-south roadway connections to/from Dallas and Rockwall counties, as well as potential east-west roadway connections to/from Hunt and Rockwall counties. 

Work efforts associated with this planning process include: travel demand modeling; reports on future traffic volumes, origin-destination analyses, and other travel characteristics; and presentations to local government elected officials, technical staff, and communities.  The CCSRP planning process will also include arterial and freeway (non-tolled) recommendations for inclusion into the DRAFT Mobility 2045 Recommendations Listings in the upcoming
Mobility 2045: The Metropolitan Transportation Plan for North Central Texas.

 

 

Status Updates

 

March 30, 2018:  In response to continued public comments, additional city/county staff meetings, and various City Council briefings conducted throughout southeastern Collin County, the following changes are reflected on the updated CCSRP Corridor Opportunities Map:

 

Previously Committed Arterials:  Established consistency with current/future local thoroughfare planning efforts and recommendations from Collin County and the cities of Fairview, Lucas, and Sachse.  Note that all previously committed and newly recommended arterial are designated as 4-lane divided facilities unless otherwise specified.

 

Arterial Projects (West of Lakes):  Established consistency with current/future local thoroughfare planning efforts and recommendations from Collin County and the cities of McKinney, Lowry Crossing, Princeton and Lucas. 

 

  • Corridor #2 (Park-Betsy-McMillan-Skyview-Kreymer Connector): Established consistency with January 16, 2018 Murphy City Council recommendation for Betsy Lane to remain a 4-lane divided arterial with city limits, and included additional recommendation to extend the corridor along Kreymer Lane/Troy Road between State Highway (SH) 78 and Corridor #3 in Wylie. 
  • Corridor #4 (Campbell-Sachse-Elm Grove Connector): Per the March 6, 2018 Rowlett City Council meeting, Elm Grove Road east of Vinson Road and the proposed Princeton Road extension north of Liberty Grove Road was eliminated from consideration. 
  • Corridor #5 (FM 544/Vinson Rd. Extension to PGBT/Hickox/Castle): In response to public comments concerning potential traffic, right-of-way, and quality of life impacts along Troy Road in the cities of Wylie, Rowlett, and in unincorporated Collin County just west of Lake Ray Hubbard, this recommendation has been relocated to existing Vinson Road between Alanis Drive and Elm Grove Road. 

There are now a total of six arterial project recommendations in addition to previously committed arterial improvements in this area.

 

Arterial Projects (East of Lakes):  Established consistency with current/future local thoroughfare planning efforts and recommendations from Collin County and Rockwall County.  Five additional arterial recommendations have been added:

 

  • Corridor #9 (CR 483-FM 2755-CR 940 Connector);
  • Corridor #10 (FM 3549 Extension);
  • Corridor #11 (FM 1138 Extension);
  • Corridor #12 (Erby Campbell Extension); and
  • Corridor #13 (FM 1778-FM 1777-FM 2453 Connector). 

There are now a total of seven arterial project recommendations in addition to previously committed arterial improvements in this area.

 

Freeway Projects:  Continued planning is recommended for both the original Collin County Outer Loop corridor and the proposed SH 78-Outer Loop Combination corridor as individual new freeway opportunities.  This recommendation is consistent with the December 12, 2017 Wylie Resolution specifying no development of new freeways within city limits and emphasizing feasibility for new capacity on existing Lake Lavon roadway bridge crossings before any new bridges may be pursued. Development of existing or new alignment alternatives for the US 380 corridor and proposed Spur 399 Extension will be determined at a later date by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and their ongoing public, stakeholder, and local government involvement processes.

 

Mobility 2045:  The Metropolitan Transportation Plan for North Central Texas

 

At this time, the continued staged development of the original Collin County Outer Loop corridor and identified CCSRP arterial projects have been recommended for inclusion in the upcoming Mobility 2045: The Metropolitan Transportation Plan for North Central Texas.  However, inclusion of these projects neither concludes the CCSRP planning process nor does it suggest that the ultimate capacity or alignment for any of the proposed projects have been finalized.  

 

NCTCOG staff will continue working with local county and municipal staffs and elected officials to refine existing and new roadway alternative concepts to be further analyzed in future corridor-specific environmental studies.  Once additional consensus has been reached, the next phases of this planning process may be able to proceed as shown in the “Where Are We Now? Where Are We Going” graphic on this web page. 

 

NCTCOG staff will continue to update this web page on a regular basis.  Updates will include notification of future public meetings to obtain additional input and feedback on these preliminary recommendations and development of other possible alternative options, as appropriate.  For further information about this study, please refer to the CCSRP Questions and Answers.
