Construction for phase one of the project is tentatively scheduled to begin in March. Phase one will include the installation of a new storm drain on E.McKinney Street from Grissom Road to S.Fork. There will be intermittent lane closures to allow crews to safely complete the installation of the storm drain. A temporary signal light and/or traffic control flaggers will be in place when a lane is required to be closed. Once the installation is complete, roadway improvements will follow.
The McKinney Street capital improvement program project will increase capacity and improve mobility through the City. McKinney Street will widen from a two-lane rural roadway to a six-lane urban roadway from South Woodrow Lane to Grissom Road. Once complete, McKinney Street will be able to handle the continued growth in the area.
