I have heard that there may be a plan to construct an underpass or bridge to connect Memorial Drive in the Colony either to Spring Creek or to Town & Country? Is this planned?

Not supportive of bringing more traffic over to this area.

Thanks

The City of The Colony and Denton County have been investigating options to improve mobility in The Colony, and in particular, improving access to SH 121. An engineering firm has been hired to analyze alternatives to provide better access from The Colony to SH 121. There are currently six alternatives being evaluated. Two of these alternatives connect Memorial Drive to Town and Country. Two of the alternatives connect Memorial Dr. to Spring Creek Parkway. The remaining two alternatives make connections from SH 121 to South Colony Blvd. The City of Frisco Engineering Staff has been involved in the process to this point to ensure that any recommendations fully consider traffic patterns in the City of Frisco. At this time, the engineering firm is just beginning to analyze the alternatives. No recommendations have been made. We understand and share some of the same concerns and will continue to work to determine the best solution. Please feel free to give me a call if you would like to discuss the project further.

The project has been on hold pending the agreement between The Colony and the City of Frisco. The agreement does include the alignment of Memorial Drive desired by The City of Frisco which turns Memorial Drive south to Spring Creek Parkway.

No new time frame has been established. Now that the agreement has been completed, work on the project may commence in the near future.
