The East McKinney Street project will increase capacity, improve pedestrian safety, and address aging utilities in the area. East McKinney Street will widen from a two-lane rural roadway to a four-lane urban roadway with a continuous center turn lane from Loop 288 to Grissom Road. Phase One includes the installation of a new storm drain and roadway widening to four lanes, with a continuous center turn lane from Grissom Road west to South Fork. Phase Two includes widening the roadway to four lanes from Loop 288 to South Fork with a continuous center turn lane. A mixed use path will be installed on the north side of both phases and a sidewalk will be installed on the south side. Street light improvements will also be installed in both phases.
