The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Paris District is conducting a study to assess safety, maintenance and system efficiency, congestion and freight reliability, environmental sustainability, transportation choices and economic vitality across one of the most important transportation links in Grayson County. The study area, US 75 from the Collin County Line to the Texas/Oklahoma state line, includes four key cities – Van Alstyne, Howe, Sherman and Denison. The area is home to Austin College and Grayson County College as well as significant natural and agricultural resources that drive economic development in the county.
The study will take a holistic look at traffic and goods movement across this portion of Grayson County by identifying and highlighting locations needing improvements. A survey will assist in identifying issues and prioritizing study objectives. The study includes thorough analysis of operational and capacity needs to improve safety, freight movements, personal mobility and connectivity across Grayson County through the year 2040.
The district and the Sherman/Denison Metropolitan Planning Organization will work with transportation stakeholders to identify and prioritize projects that can help to enhance the safe and efficient movement of people and goods through Grayson County and parts of Collin County.
TxDOT is seeking input to identify roadway improvement opportunities for US 75. As TxDOT continues to explore all possibilities, we are reaching out to communities and interested citizens to get input and comments through the provided survey. All input will be considered as TxDOT moves forward in developing a plan that will enhance the safety of this corridor while preparing for future growth.
