Reconstruction of this intersection is scheduled to begin in September. The work will remove the uneven lane condition and improve traffic signal operation.

I've noticed a lot of flag placement and tree removal taking place South of Lebanon on Legacy. Are there plans to widen the street here?

The City of Frisco is starting a construction project to improve the capacity of the intersection of Legacy Drive and Lebanon Road.

The project consists of:
1. Constructing an additional lane on northbound and southbound Legacy from Warren Parkway to Texas Drive (just north of Lebanon Rd), and on Lebanon Drive from Todd Drive to east of Legacy Drive.
2. Reconstructing the intersection of Legacy Dr and Lebanon Rd. Upon completion, each leg of the intersection will include dual left turn lanes, three through lanes and a right turn lane.
3. Removing the existing bump in the intersection.
4. Median lighting.
These improvements are being completed to improve traffic flow through and in the vicinity of this intersection.

Is tree replacement in the medians included in this plan?

Trees will be re-established in the medians upon completion of the construction project.

The lighting on Legacy Drive will extend north of the Legacy/Lebanon Intersection to just north of Academy Drive.

Are there immediate plans to create three lanes down Legacy past Cheyenne Village? If so, will the trees be replaced?

There are not any immediate plans to widen Legacy north of the current project which ends just north of the Lebanon intersection.

I enjoy living in this vibrant community Frisco Texas. However, in the interest of saving tax dollars, Why did the City instal new "expensive," lighting along Lebanon between Dallas Tollway and Legacy along with tress and landscaping if they had plans to widen the road?" Seems like I just witnessed workers putting bark arpound all the trees just weeks ago and now the construction crews that are widening Lebanon are going to destroy all that work. Not a good use of Tax dollars! Why wasn't this planned better to eliminate double spending?

I understand your concern. It may seem that the trees were unnecessarily destroyed; however, they were not. The contractor is required to remove the trees and keep them alive. Some of the trees were immediately relocated to other medians within Frisco that were ready for trees. Other trees were removed from the project, but are being kept alive at a nursery for replanting at the conclusion of the construction project. In addition, new trees will be planted to restore the medians to a condition near to the condition at the beginning of the project.

The median lighting had been in place for some time, but needed to be relocated to construct the new lanes. New lighting will be installed as part of the project.

Construction of new lanes in all directions from the intersection of Lebanon and Legacy proceeded quickly. Now major work has seemingly come to a halt.

What's up?

Construction on the project has been on hold since Christmas due to utility conflicts. Before starting work on the intersection, which will have a bigger impact on traffic, we wanted to ensure that we would not have any utility delays. The utility companies are now clear and you will see work resume shortly.
