A planned public hearing scheduled for March 2 was cancelled due to severe weather.

In eastern Collin County, there’s still time for the public to weigh in on proposed changes to U.S. Highway 380. In Famersville, Highway 380 is going to be re-routed south of its current path. The re-routing is planned to begin just east of Lavon Lake and continue until the Collin-Hunt county line, at which point Hwy. 380 will rejoin its current path. The stretch of highway in question runs a little more than seven and a half miles. The plan is to leave the existing Highway 380 through Farmersville as a local business route, with through traffic taking the new bypass. The main questions regarding the project involve exactly where the new highway would be placed.

An in-person public hearing scheduled for March 2 had to be cancelled due to severe weather. As a result, the Texas Department of Transportation has extended the online comment period through April 7.
