Which entity is responsible for expanding Custer (north of 121) to 6 lanes? The traffic 8-9am and 4-6pm is really bad and backed up. Late afternoon, traffic is backed up onto 121 service roads and then at the light at Target.

We are working on the design of the project to widen Custer Road to 6 lanes from SH 121 to Stonebridge Drive. The plans are approximately 60% complete. Construction of the project is expected to begin in Q3 (July-Sept) 2015 and take about 18 months to complete. Funding for construction of the project is currently not available. The start of construction is reliant on funding becoming available. The Citizens Bond Committee is meeting to discuss funding for future road projects with the anticipation of a bond election in May 2015.

Is this the part of Custer that Frisco is responsible for and McKinney is from that point going North? If so, Frisco should have expanded when McKinney did. The only traffic problem which is terrible and dangerous is the 121 to Stonebridge section. What about adjusting light timings? It should be considered a safety hazard that traffic backs up into 121 service road. Thanks.

With the road bonds approved, I was curious of the current status of this project.

Thanks.

What is the new schedule? While the expansion is pending, is it possible to adjust the timing of the light at 121/Custer? At 5PM to 7PM, vehicles on Custer are backing up on to the 121 lanes blocking the intersection on a daily basis.

The Custer Road widening project will begin on January 4, 2016 and is planned to take about a year. The contract limits lane closures on weekdays to between 9 am and 3:30 pm, so that the number of travel lanes on Custer Road will remain as they are today during the commuter morning and evening peak hours. If you have concerns about the traffic signal timing at SH 121 and Custer Road, please contact the City of Plano because they operate and maintain this traffic signal.
