By unanimous vote at a recent Prosper Town Council meeting in which all council members were present, the Town expressed strong support for the eventual conversion of US 380 into a limited access roadway.
The council issued a resolution to that effect, citing the need to plan effectively for the expected increase in the general area’s population and the accompanying rise in traffic.
A limited access roadway (LAR) is often referred to as a freeway with main lanes, frontage roads, entrance and exit ramps, and grade-separated interchanges. Separately, the
Council also emphasized their support of a US 380 bypass that terminates east of the intersection with Custer Road.
“It’s clear to anyone who looks at the trends and models that have been developed,” says Harlan Jefferson, Prosper Town Manager. “In its present form, US 380 will not meet the needs of the area. Converting it to a limited access roadway seems to be the only way that it can accommodate the demands that will be placed on it.”
Recognizing the critically important necessity of efficient movement of traffic, the Collin County Commissioners Court passed a resolution prioritizing US 380 for conversion to a limited access roadway. Over half of the town of Prosper is in Collin County.
The opening date for Frisco Fresh Market has been delayed by a year, but construction continues on the development.
Frisco Fresh Market, a 32.6-acre mixed-use development, was first announced in fall 2015 and was slated to open in spring 2017. However, because of delayed construction, the opening date has been pushed back to 2018. The development is being built on the northeast corner of Frisco Street and Main Street, next to Toyota Stadium and across from Frisco Square.
“[The delay] was due to typical construction interruptions, and if anything changes we need to submit those changes to the city and wait for their approval,” Frisco Fresh Market spokesperson Alis Bonda said. “So, there were a number of factors for the delay, but we’re on track for opening next year.”
The owner of the development is Frisco FM LLC, which is an entity created by developer USA Infrastructure Investments.
The development will encompass 600 apartment units that are under construction. Also under construction are two hotels: Holiday Inn Express and Candlewood Suites. The development will also include a third hotel, La Quinta Inn. The development includes two office buildings and four retail and restaurant buildings and will also have a 1-acre park.
However, the main attraction is the 70,000-square-foot farmers market. Bonda said. The market will have an outdoor market with space for 100 day-to-day vendors and an indoor market with specialty-food vendors and eight restaurants, which have not been announced.
The market will also have a wine-tasting facility.
The indoor market will encompass test kitchens for cooking classes and conference rooms.
