This street is so congested in the mornings. Any plans to widen this road? There are so many new neighborhoods in this area doesn't seem like a two lane road is able to support it. It literally takes me 20 minutes to get from Lebanon to 121 toll in the mornings. What about extending Teel to 121 or any other street. Taking Lebanon to 423 is out of the question. That street is even worse when you hit The Colony. Thanks!

The City has no plans to widen Legacy at this time.
Teel cannot be extended south to SH 121 due to existing neighborhoods in Frisco and The Colony.

I read the response from a year ago, but I wonder if this has been reconsidered. Especially with the Toyota headquarter and other companies opening in the Legacy Office park. I believe it is going to be a nightmare trying to get to 121 on Legacy. I realize this is a difficult problem to solve given the neighborhoods that hinder north/south routes between 121 and Lebanon. What about a road that runs parallel to the train tracks?

“There are a number of roadway projects under construction that may influence the traffic volumes on Legacy between SH 121 and Warren. These include widening of Dallas Parkway (DNT frontage roads), widening of FM 423, and the recently completed connection of Stonebrook between DNT and Legacy. Legacy between 121 and Warren is shown on the city’s thoroughfare plan as an ultimate 6 lane road, but the widening to 6 lanes has not been scheduled at this time. City engineering staff have been coordinating transportation planning efforts for the 121/Legacy area with NTTA and the City of Plano. The railroad right-of-way is being preserved for possible future additional track.”

The Grand Park Project remains a very high priority for the City of Frisco. About the time of the last post by Mr. Raymond, testing revealed that Stewart Creek had been affected by contamination from the Exide Facility. While this contamination did not pose an immediate health risk, remediation of Stewart Creek would be required from the Exide Facility to Lake Lewisville. This includes the Grand Park portion of that Creek. Fortunately this was discovered prior to commencement of any work on the Grand Park Lake or any other creek related features. The remediation efforts related to Exide are also a very high priority for Frisco. This effort has been complicated by the Exide Bankruptcy but the efforts to remediate continue. Extensive testing has been taking place for some time now.

The effort to obtain a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers permit for the lake did meet some obstacles but that effort has also recently began to move forward. We hope to have that permit this calendar year. We intend to coordinate the Exide remediation with the construction of the Grand Park Lake knowing that the lake can’t be constructed until the remediation process has begun. I am hopeful that actual work will begin within the next 18 months.

Should you have any questions please contact me at any time.
