What's the deal with the bridges/lane shifts on Preston just south of Prosper? Is the overpass going to be torn down??

The bridges at Panther Creek and the Parvin Branch Tributary of Panther Creek are being reconstructed by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) to facilitate the future widening of Preston Road. This construction will not affect the overpass and there are no plans to remove the overpass. It is anticpated that TxDOT will begin the widening of Preston Road to 4 lanes divided from Main Street to US 380 in 2006.

Since last couple of days I am seeing some surverying activity going on by "PBSJ" on either sides of Preston Road south of 380 and north of 720. Is this regarding the expansion of Preston Road coming up? Has there been movement of dates for this project?

Correct, the Texas Department of Transportation is working on the design plans for SH289/Preston Road from FM 3537/Main Street to US380. The dates set by TxDOT is to bid the project in December 2006, start construction in March 2007 and be complete by March 2009.

Isn't that an awfully long time to wait for an awfully big problem? It's bumper to bumper every day through Preston - what's so wrong with starting the bid process now???

Scott,

Sorry for the delayed response. I have received the following from Amy Baker in our engineering department to explain what occurs on a project like this.

In February, TxDOT conducted a Public Hearing here in Frisco for the Preston Road Widening Project. This Hearing was held in order to collect public comments/concerns, which are a required component of the environmental documentation for this project. Once TxDOT has received environmental clearance, design can be wrapped up and ROW acquisition can start. The citizen comments/concerns may or may not be implemented into the final design, depending upon standards, cost, etc. Currently, TxDOT is implementing feasible comments/concerns into the design and awaiting environmental clearance.

TxDOT has scheduled the project’s design phase to last 15 months (…this time frame includes typically thorough and lengthy reviews by the TxDOT District and Austin Offices). The Collin County Area Office will finish the design and send it to the District Office for review/approval in July of 2006. Upon approval, Austin will review the plans in (roughly) September of 2006. This is why the plans are being scheduled to bid late next year.

I am working with Jason Brodigan in the Collin County Office on this project…should any questions arise or additional info. be required, please contact me…thanks!!!

It seems that the bridge/widening project on Preston north of El Dorado hasn't had any work done in well over a month. Why is this? When will it be done? Also, I noticed pink survey markers along far north Preston - does this mean the timeline to widen Preston is now sooner than later?

Scott, thanks for the post. As stated above, the bridges at Panther Creek and the Parvin Branch Tributary of Panther Creek are being reconstructed by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) so to I would ask that you contact them directly on the status of their work. The best person to contact over there is Jason Brodigan at (972) 542-2345. To date I have not heard of any revised schedule on the project. If you have any problem getting an answer from Jason, please feel free to contact me to let me know.

Thanks, Hulon
