Are there any plans to create a turning lane North bound Preston on to East bound Rolater in front of Eckerds?

There are not any plans at this time to add a right-turn lane here. It is something that will be considered in the future.

In order to "help" the flow of traffic on the main roads, my understanding is the City requires right turn lanes. Why was one not required for this intersection?

The City of Frisco’s Thoroughfare and Circulation Standards call for all Major Road ways to have right turn lanes. The City currently has 15 foot street easement to build a right turn lane in the future. Currenly it is a unfunded project.

A right turn lane would help this intersection and traffic to continue flowing. Of course now that Eckerds has planted trees where the turn lane should be, this will add a complication further down the road.

Additionally, at the same intersection, the turn lane traveling West bound on Rolater doesn't permit enough time to allow the morning traffic to flow through the intersection. Every morning, I wait through 2 lights until I can turn while other drivers simply continue West through the light and then make U-Turns by the 7-11.

Will a traffic study be completed at that intersection to determine if any improvements can be made.

Thank you,

The City continues to watch intersections to maintain a constant flow of traffic. I will have the traffic engineer review the timing of this light and report the findings to Txdot. thank you for your question.

At the same intersection, what is happening with the utility poles in front of Kohl's along Preston? They seem to be in a transition state, but I think that they have been like this for about a year. Are they being buried, or will they stay the way they are?

I am sorry for the delay on your question. The remaining lines are coming down but the timing is still not scheduled. It is my understaning the lines that are currently in place are the FISD fiber lines that link the schools and City buildings. The poles are coming down and we will continue to work to that point.
thank you
