Allen’s next major road project will provide a new link between Watters Road and Chelsea Boulevard.
The latest extension of Ridgeview Drive will help accommodate future growth near SH 121 and serve as a key connection to the recently-opened Preston Elementary School. The project includes a four-lane roadway and six-lane bridge spanning Cottonwood Creek.
Most of the project’s $4.4 million budget comes from bond funding approved by Allen voters. Water and sewer impact fees, paid by developers, and Collin County bond funding also contribute to the budget for construction costs.
Work on the new roadway will begin in November. It is expected to open next August, prior to the start of school.
