Join Collin County in developing a plan to keep communities connected and prepared to accommodate future growth.
Collin County is experiencing rapid growth and the Future Mobility Study is an opportunity for the public and stakeholders to provide input on current and future transportation needs. The study includes east and southeast Collin County as well as Dallas, Rockwall and Hunt counties to help ensure a regional approach to transportation planning.
The first phase of the Future Mobility Study ended in October 2021 and was an opportunity for the County to collect data and share information about projected population and employment growth, traffic patterns within the study area, current and future developments, current safety issues and environmental constraints.
The initial phase focused on outreach with agencies, local governments and the public, and did not include any route studies, roadway designs or recommended improvements.
Collin County began meeting with city and county
representatives to gather additional information such as transportation
planning efforts and current and future commercial and residential
Collin County held two Technical Works Sessions with county and city representatives to present study data and gather initial input.
Information shared at the Technical Work Sessions was presented for public review and comment during virtual and in-person public meetings.

The second phase of the Future Mobility Study began in November 2021 and will focus on identifying transportation improvements to accommodate population and employment growth in the eastern part of the County.
Using data and feedback collected during the first phase of the study, the second phase will focus on identifying specific improvements and route studies to support future project implementation decisions, preserving land needed for improvements, and determining the potential use of federal funding.
The second phase of the study will include:
The second phase of the study began in November 2021 and is expected to be complete by Spring 2023.

Developing a cohesive roadway network and planning for future roadway corridors can require years of advance planning and development which is why the county must plan now for growth it expects in 30 years and beyond.
The longer the county waits to develop a plan, the more development continues to occur which could limit future transportation options.
Early planning and public involvement are important for maximizing mobility benefits, identifying transportation options, evaluating and mitigating possible impacts, and preserving land needed for potential improvements.
