Why is the city studying this?

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) plans to begin a full reconstruction of S.H. 5 generally between Spur 399 and U.S. 380 in early 2025. As currently planned, very minor improvements would be made to improve pedestrian crossing safety near Downtown McKinney by TxDOT. As areas east of S.H. 5 are undergoing redevelopment, the city is evaluating alternatives to improve crossing safety, strengthen connections between communities currently divided by the highway, and further enhance the Historic Downtown McKinney Cultural District.
