  • Coming up next week in Princeton, there’ll be another public meeting on the future of U.S. Highway 380. The Texas Department of Transportation is working on plans to re-route parts of Hwy. 380 from McKinney to the east, through Princeton, over Lavon Lake, through Farmersville, and on to the Collin County-Hunt County line. The project could include freeways bypassing both Princeton and Farmersville. The next public meeting on the topic is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on Tue. Aug. 2 at Princeton High School. The event will not be streamed live, but a recording of the meeting will be publicly available afterwards. More information about the proposed makeover of U.S. Highway 380 can be found at keepitmovingdallas.com.
  • In Commerce, there are no water safety concerns today. The city lifted a boil water advisory yesterday afternoon. Water usage restrictions remain in effect in Commerce. Details are available at the city’s website, commercetx.org. The city has also posted the information on the city’s Facebook page. The restrictions apply to outdoor water usage.
