New Collin County Outer Loop Section in Works
July 13, 2017
ArrowBrooke residents will one day have a new route for traveling east thanks to plans to construct a new section of the Collin County Outer Loop.
According to NBC DFW, Collin County is currently acquiring the right-of-way needed to extend the Collin County Outer Loop. The section the county hopes to construct in the next two years stretches between the planned northern extension of the Dallas North Tollway in Celina east to Preston Road (Route 289) in Prosper.
Plans call for the Outer Loop to extend 50 miles from the Dallas North Tollway all the way to I-30 in Royse City. It currently stretches 4.6 miles from Highway 75 in Anna to Highway 121 near Melissa.
Right now, U.S. 380 serves as Collin County’s only east-west route. NBC DFW reports 50,000 cars travel on 380 every day, and this number is expected to double in the next 20 years.
