Roadway, Water, and Construction Projects

West Lucas Road Update: 

There are four projects impacting W. Lucas Road in Lucas (see link):

Project #1

Angel Parkway (FM 2551)
From - Estates Parkway on the north
To - Parker Road on the south

TxDOT will be widening the two-lane FM 2551 to a six-lane, divided roadway. Their current estimate is to start construction in 2022. TxDOT, the City of Allen, and Collin County have been working on this project since 1998. This is not a City of Lucas project.

Project #2

West Lucas Road
From – Angel Parkway
To – Country Club Road

The City of Lucas is moving forward with the reconstruction of West Lucas Road from Angel Parkway to Country Club Road. This project will expand West Lucas Road to a four-lane divided roadway. The projected cost of this project is $12.55 million, and the funding is being made available through a partnership between Collin County and the City of Lucas. The City is in the process of selecting an engineering design consultant for this project. The new roadway will have a total of four lanes (two eastbound and two westbound) with a median. The median will improve safety and provide room for left hand turn lanes. The addition of right hand turn lanes is being considered as well. The drainage alongside the roadway will also be improved as part of this project.

Citizens might have a lot of questions. As the design phase of this important transportation project progresses, property owners will have an opportunity to discuss the impact of this project on their property with the City. Please do not hesitate to contact me at 972-912-1208 and [email protected] if there are any questions about the project. To keep updated on the City’s construction projects, send an email to me requesting to be added to the construction update email list. The City anticipates construction starting in 2022.

Project #3

FM 1378 Environmental Study
From – Stacy Road
To – Parker Road

TxDOT is reviewing and studying the traffic, social, and environmental impacts of possible further construction along this corridor. TxDOT has not provided the City of Lucas with any details yet. This study will take two to three years to complete. No construction date or construction plans are available. TxDOT estimates that construction is at least eight to ten years away. Even though the limits of this project are in the City of Lucas, this is not a City project.

Project #4

Bait Shop (FM 1378/FM 3286) Intersection
From – Edgefield Lane on the west and Lost Valley on the east
To – Prado Verde Drive on the south

TxDOT’s current estimate is to start construction in 2023. The design plans are 60% complete. A copy of the TxDOT plans on available on the City website at https://www.lucastexas.us/documents/bait-shop-intersection-aug-5-2020/. The City of Lucas and Collin County are participating in various aspects of this project, but the Bait Shop Intersection project is not a City project.

Winningkoff Phase 2 Traffic Maintenance and Staging – February through October 2021 is the new timeframe for this project. The delay is due to the availability of culvert boxes and pipes. The access to 1020 through 1545 Winningkoff Road will be impacted due to lane closures and traffic switches. There are three main stages for the Winningkoff Road Phase 2 project from Forestview Drive to Snider Lane:

  1. Stage I (February through April) – There will be total closures of Winningkoff Road to “through traffic” in two locations: 1) between Forestview Drive and Ramsay Drive and 2) between Manor Lane and Snider Lane. Access to properties between 1090 and 1290 Winningkoff Road including all on Manor Lane will need to use Ramsay Drive.  Access to 1246 and 1445 Winningkoff Road will be maintained from the Winningkoff Road/Snider Lane intersection. During this stage, new pavement in the closed areas as well as temporary detour pavement on the east side will be constructed. The small culvert crossing at 1020 Winningkoff Road will be reconstructed, and the large culvert north of Manor Lane will become a bridge class culvert. The Winningkoff Road/Manor Lane intersection will be built a half at a time.
  2. Stage II (May through July) – Winningkoff Road will be one-lane northbound from Forestview Drive to McMillen Road. The western half of Winningkoff Road will be constructed. Ramsay Drive will be closed at Winningkoff Road. The driveways on the west side will be built a half at a time.
  3. Stage III (August through October) – Winningkoff Road will be one-lane northbound from Forestview Drive to McMillen Road. The eastern half of Winningkoff Road will be constructed. Ramsay Drive will be open, and Snider Lane will be closed at Winningkoff Road. The driveways on the east side will be built a half at a time.
