NCTCOG Roadway Plan


Collin County Strategic Roadway Plan

The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) will provide a presentation regarding the Collin County Strategic Roadway Plan (CCSRP) at the Murphy City Hall on Tuesday, December 12, 2017, beginning at 6:00 PM.  As part of a comprehensive Needs Assessment, NCTCOG will be soliciting input from those communities affected by potential roadway alignment alternatives.  Representatives from the NCTCOG will provide an overview of the CCSRP and respond to questions regarding the plan.  

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 plan 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 will evaluate possible north-south roadway connections to/from Dallas and Rockwall counties, as well as east-west roadway connections to/from Hunt and Rockwall counties.  Work efforts associated with this plan include: travel demand modeling; reports on future traffic volumes, origin-destination analyses, and other travel characteristics; technical memorandum summarizing methodologies and results; and presentations to local government elected officials, technical staff, and communities.  The CCSRP will also include highway (non-tolled) recommendations for inclusion into the upcoming Mobility 2045: The Metropolitan Transportation Plan for North Central Texas.

Current Status

NCTCOG staff is conducting outreach with elected officials and technical staff of local governments throughout Collin County to identify a range of conceptual roadway alignment alternatives to be analyzed in more detail in any future corridor-specific environmental studies.
