Do you know when we might expect to see 423 widened from The Colony north into Frisco and Little Elm? If so, do you know how many lanes wide the road might be? Thanks.

Thanks Frank for the post. FM 423 north from Stewarts Creek Road (The Colony) to US 380 is 6.91-miles long and will be constructed as a 6-lane urban arterial. The plans are currently under design and are scheduled to be complete the first of next year. Once plans are complete and funds are allocated by the state, the Texas Department of Transportation will release the project for construction. At this time we do not have an exact construction schedule but anticipate the project may begin sometime in late 2006/early 2007 and take two years to complete. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me at (972) 335-5585 ext. 127.

Thanks, Hulon

Hulon, this is a long term or short term plan?

I saw some other posting by Cissy Sylo, Director (May 23, 2005- 03:48 pm), saying there is a short term plan to add 2- more southbound lanes by this year. This is still true, or it change!

Thanks,

Thanks Shafi for the post. At this time TxDOT is still looking into the possibility of adding an additional asphalt lane to a portion of FM 423 south of Main Street in order to get 2 lanes in one direction. At this time I do not have a schedule from their office on if and when this will occur. I would suggest you contact David Hensley at the Denton Area Office of the Texs Department of Transportation (940) 387-1414 for further information.

Thanks, Hulon

As a follow up, do you know if there are plans to widen this road to 6 lanes all the way through The Colony to 121? Thanks.

TxDOT is working with The Colony as well to widen the road to 121. I would assume that they are also widening to 6 lanes but since I have not seen any plans I am not exactly sure. David Hensley with TxDOT would be your best contact to verify this information.

Thanks, Hulon
