Resident feedback wanted on future transportation needs

by | Dec 1, 2022 | Area news, Latest

To address future transportation needs, Collin County is conducting a future mobility study that is set to be finished next year.

Currently, the county is seeking resident feedback on its study at the midpoint as it solicits feedback on draft recommendations before proposing them to local cities and government partners. There is an online public hearing that will remain live at http://ccfuturemobility.com/virtual-public-meeting until Thursday, Dec. 15.

The future mobility study is attempting to assess the needs that future residential and commercial growth will have on roadways throughout the county. Using data the county has collected, it is projecting needs that could arise 30 years from now and beyond.

The study began during the summer in 2020 before the first phase was completed in October 2021. Previously, the county conducted a future mobility study in 2014 and is looking to revise its recommendations with this iteration.

Public involvement is one aspect the county is looking to engage as it solidifies the recommendations county employees will present to local cities and other partners when it implements road infrastructure and transportation improvements.
