Is there a timetable to construct the most southern segment of Teel?

This is the segment that will loop around to the east and re-intersect with Lebanon. (based on the Millennium Thoroughfare plan)

This connection was recently removed with the 2006 comprehensive plan. Because the road would not serve the region and only serve Frisco, the Army Corps of Engineers would not permit the road to cross that section of Lake Lewisville. You can view page 18 of chapter 6 in the new comprehensive plan here nning/Chapter_6_Transportation_041306.pdf

Has anythought went into connecting Teel Pkwy with Paige road in Colony. Can you share some info on this ? It would be great to have an alternative route to go to 121 on Teel.

Is there a plan to build a permanent terminus at the southern end of Teel? Right now it looks like a temporary dead end.

VG and Paul,

I agree that a connection to Teel would benefit traffic flow in west Frisco. Many years ago Teel was expected to connect to the Colony. In the 90's, this plan fell apart and development occurred in the northern part of the Colony that prohibited the connection.

When that original plan fell through, Frisco then amended the thoroughfare plan to show Teel extending across the lake, bending back to the northeast, and intersecting Lebanon near where 4th Army intersects it today. As mentioned in my previous response, this extension of Teel was not approved by the US Army Corps of Engineers. Because of the Corps decision, we removed the connection from our most recent thoroughfare plan.

There are no plans to change the end of Teel.

There is currently a wooden structure at the Teel dead end that is white with red stripes to warn drivers that the road ends. It looks like the wood is rotting and the entire structure is beginning to collapse.

Will this wooden structure be maintained, or will the city replace it with permanent metal signs? Also, what about putting "no outlet" signs at the Teel/Lebanon intersection pointing south?

M A,

As Brian Moen's post in 2007 explained above, the development of neighborhoods had occured in The Colony that made it impossible for Teel to connect to Paige. Therefore, no discussions with The Colony are possible on the Teel issue.

In addition, since the US Army Corp of Engineers did not approve extending Teel across that branch of the lake, the City of Frisco removed the extension of Teel from the thoroughfare plan. Due to neighborhood development that has occurred since, it is no longer possible for the south end of Teel to be extended in any direction regardless of whether the US Army Corp of Engineers changes its mind in the future or not.
