I am not sure if this area is part of Frisco or Colony, but are there any plans to expand 423 near Lebanon or at least add a right turning lane on 423 for those turning right on Lebanon (going north on 423)?

Engineering Services has an up to date list of projects at http://www.friscotexas.gov/departments/engineering/Documents/Monthly%20Report.pdf . On page 10 is a roadway expansion project for FM 423 from SH 121 to US 380.

Thank you for your question.

I have a question about this intersection @ FM 423 & Lebanon. Is there any way to get the timing of the lights changed? The lights on Lebanon to cross FM 423 are way too short. Only 2-3 cars (on a good day) can cross the intersection before it turns red. This is very frustrating. On a similar note, is there any way to create an exit out of the Walgreen's on 423 & Lebanon so that you can continue west on Lebanon? I live in Waterstone just across the street but I have to turn right out of the Walgreen's parking lot and do a u-turn at the light to get back on Lebanon -- which is crazy. Why did they only make a left turn entrance from Lebanon into the Walgreens? Did anyone not think that people living farther down Lebanon towards the Tribute might want to go back in that direction?

Christine,

It is a challenge to time the traffic signals along FM 423 because there is so much more traffic on FM 423 compared to the side streets, and all of that traffic is constrained in just one or two lanes. In the case of Lebanon Road, there is 10 times as much traffic on FM 423 than there is on Lebanon to the west, and four times as much traffic as there is on Lebanon to the east. We will observe the intersection and see if any adjustments can be made to the signal timing. However, it will not be possible to give substantially more green time to the side streets (such as Lebanon) until TxDOT's reconstruction of FM 423 is complete and we have more lanes to carry its heavier traffic load.

Yes, a full median opening will be constructed at the Walgreens driveway as part of the reconstruction of FM 423. The full opening cannot be constructed now because it would be ripped out in the near future because TxDOT is going to build a temporary transition lane through that area while FM 423 is under construction. This transition lane will shift all traffic onto one half of Lebanon Road while the new intersection at FM 423 is being built. When the reconstruction of FM 423 is nearing completion, TxDOT will remove the transition lane and install a full median opening.

Thanks for the information Joel. The temporary lane your talking about - will it go east or west of 423? I don't see where it can fit west unless the Waterstone fountain is taken out and/or part of the Walgreens parking lot. Or, are they planning to re-route traffic THROUGH The Landing at Waterstone?

Christopher,

Traffic will not be rerouted through the neighborhood. The temporary transition lane I mentioned will be built in the median of Lebanon Road and will not interfere with any properties. One temporary transition lane will be built just west of FM 423 and another will be built just east of FM 423.

These temporary transition lanes will shift Lebanon Road traffic onto the other side of the median, creating a two-way traffic situation where both directions of traffic use the same half of the road as they pass through the intersection with FM 423. Shifting Lebanon Road traffic onto one half of the road and then the other will allow different parts of the FM 423 intersection to be built.

Thanks,

Can you share what the new time-line for this is? It looks like the gas and water have been moved out of the intersection and electric and phone are being done now. ??

Christopher,

Yes, they are still in the process of relocating utilities. We have been told that TxDOT plans to start road construction in March.

Hello, Can you please let me know what the estimated completion date is for the extension of FM423 near the Lebanon extension (assuming work starts this month)? Does this include extension all the way from SH121?

Thanks!

Utility relocations on FM 423 are still underway, but are taking longer than anticipated. The contractor may not start this month as hoped, but it is still possible. Regardless of when the project begins, it is anticipated that the project will take 2 years to construct.

The utility relocations are approximately 90% complete; however, construction of the road project has not yet begun. Construction of the project to widen FM 423 to 6 lanes is expected to begin in May and take 2 years to complete.

When is construction currently scheduled to begin? What is the issue that has caused (or is causing) further delay?

Thank you for your response.

TxDOT has been working with the property owners on FM 423 to finalize acquiring the property required to construct the widening project. The delays in acquiring the final parcels of property have prevented utility companies such as CoServ Electric and AT&T from moving their lines out of the way of the project. TxDOT has delayed the start of the project until June to allow the utilities to relocate their lines.
