Background Information

The West Lucas Road construction project is an expansion project of the existing two-lane roadway to a four-lane roadway. The City of Lucas began the West Lucas project as a result of anticipated traffic increase from neighboring areas in our region. The City estimated that approximately 70 percent of the vehicles traveling on West Lucas Road originate from outside the City of Lucas. The project has been a collaborative effort between the City, TxDOT, and Collin County in order to solve regional issues and mitigate traffic congestion in our area. Collin County and TxDOT have both committed funding contributions in order to improve traffic in the area. This project supplements the existing and ongoing work at the FM 1378 / FM 3286 intersection, along with areas east of the Lucas Fire Station.

Upon completion, the new roadway will have occasional dedicated turning lanes and allow for better flow of traffic on the roads it connects. The project area will include all of the roadway east of Angel Parkway to the Lucas Fire Station (intersection of Country Club Road). Planning for this project is still underway, with design alternative recently presented by BCC Engineering and approved by City Council. More updates will be provided on this page as the project moves forward.
