Proposition C – Street and Transportation

This proposition requests funding for the purpose of constructing, improving, extending, expanding, upgrading and developing streets and roads, bridges and intersections in the Town and related drainage improvements, utility relocations, landscaping, curbs and sidewalks, traffic safety and operational improvements, entryway signage and other street and road signage and land for such purposes. Three projects are planned to be completed from other obligations of the Town and are specifically excluded from the bond authorization.  These three excluded projects are Frontier Parkway from the Dallas North Tollway to Preston Road, the Dallas North Tollway Overpass At Highway 380 and Fishtrap Road from Teel Parkway to Stuber Elementary School because those projects are being jointly funded by the Town and other governmental partners through interlocal agreements.
