380 Info & Updates
380 News & Updates
U.S. 380 Feasibility Study:
TxDOT is still developing final recommendations for the future alignment of 380, and the scope of work has changed to include options for alternative routes (aka “the outer loop”) other than 380. This has lengthened the timeline for issuing a final report, which is now anticipated in early 2022.
FM 2931 and FM 1385 Expansion
TxDOT is developing a schematic layout for these roadways that will include expanding the cross-sections to multiple lanes and possibly changing their alignments to better connect to other highways. They are in the beginning stages of this project and did not have a completion date at this time.
Temporary safety features:
Speed study: Awaiting response from TxDOT on status.
Signal study for Magnolia (signal implemented and working) and Gardenia: Signal completed and in operation.
Restriping: Adding raised pavement markers (new contractor).
Allow the Town of Little Elm to add additional signage for the hands-free device zone: We are coordinating the sign installation with TxDOT and will have the signs installed within 30 days.
Construction and Improvement Updates:
See below for updates from TxDot regarding requested safety improvements.
