Suburban Dallas County May Seek Bond For Transportation Projects

The Dallas Morning News reports, county commissioners in Collin County, Texas, re making plans to seek voter approval in November of a bond for road and other infrastructure projects. During their meeting this week, they voted unanimously to have a planning board “research and prioritize projects and analyze costs.” One lawmaker noted that 2018 was the last time a transportation bond received approval, and the county’s growth has created new demands. Potential transportation projects include “a three-level interchange for Legacy Drive and State Highway 121 and service roads on the Sam Rayburn Tollway, estimated at $60 million; and a bridge over the Trinity River connecting Farm to Market 543 to Buc-ee’s Boulevard, estimated at $50 million, according to [documents attachments to the commission’s February 20 agenda].”
