Hundreds turned out for information on an item that effects every single individual: possible Highway 380 improvements.
The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has held a series of public meetings on the Hwy. 380 feasibility study including a meeting at Princeton High Schoool Tuesday, May 1 where hundreds gathered to see potential alignments for the roadway.
Walking into the facility, attendees were greeted by a slew of TxDOT employees, engineers and stakeholders to help answer questions surrounding five possible alignments for a Hwy. 380 freeway. Routes were laid out on large maps to allow citizens a close look at various aspects of the roadway.
According to information presented at the meeting, there was a 24 percent increase in the population of Collin County from 2010 to 2017. Texas state demographers have projected a 166 percent increase in population growth for the county from 2018 to 2040.
