US Highway 380 Bypass Opposition

 

The Town of Prosper has passed seven Town Council-approved Resolutions since 2017 strongly opposing any proposed alignment for the widening of US 380 not located along the existing US 380 corridor. Details on the proposed alignments as they relate to our community are available here. We would like to invite our community to join us in opposing any proposed alignment for the widening of US 380 not located along the existing US 380 corridor.

Town of Prosper Thoroughfare Plan

The Town’s Thoroughfare Plan shows U.S. Highway 380 as a Limited Access Roadway/Highway.  The Town has already preserved sufficient right-of-way for the roadway to be expanded along its current alignment.

The TxDOT US 380 Collin County Feasibility Study Final Report and Implementation Plan, which was released in March 2020, shows TxDOT’s Recommended Alignment for US 380 to remain on the current alignment within the Town of Prosper.
