Intersection of County Road 371/County Road 376 and State Highway 5

Background: After assessing the intersection and determining a signal was warranted, TxDOT completed a traffic signal in June. However, whenever a signal is within 200 feet from a railroad crossing, TxDOT must work with the railroad company to install preemptive facilities (i.e. sensors, gates) to ensure the crossing and signals interact.
 
TxDOT worked with the Dallas, Garland, & Northeastern Railroad (DGNO) railroad company and executed an agreement in April 2021 to install preemptive equipment. DGNO purchased and ordered the equipment, but it remains stuck in a supply chain issue. They anticipate they will be able to install the gate and sensor in mid-December, at which time TxDOT can begin full operation of the traffic signal.
 
TxDOT does not plan to turn the signal on to full green-yellow-red operations until these are installed due to the high risk that someone could get stuck at the railroad tracks on a red light when a train is approaching. 

Update 11/18/2021: In coordination with the City of Anna and Collin County, TxDOT will transition the lights to blinking red to create a four-way stop as interim arrangements to improve the safety at this intersection until DGNO completes its installation. The four-way stop will activate on Monday, Nov. 22, 2021. 

Ferguson Parkway

Project Description: Construct 1.2 miles of roadway connecting Ferguson Parkway between Taylor Blvd. and the Collin County Outer Loop (CCOL). Road is a future 6-lane divided parkway with 120’ of right-of-way. Phase 1 would construct 2 concrete curb and gutter lanes and include a 3-lane bridge. This project is a top priority due to the connectivity to two regional roadways (FM 455 and the CCOL). The project moves traffic to our population center without having to use the congested intersections of FM 455 at US 75 and FM 455 at SH 5.
