This is telling....

Morris said the county could leverage the bond money with $800 million in state and federal dollars already allotted for Collin County. Morris said the county could get more value out of that money if the county works with the Texas Department of Transportation and others on engineering and right-of-way needs.

County officials hope it's enough cash up-front to get routes approved and protect land for the necessary roads to then be built.

"We're growing so rapidly and developing the raw land to the point where we're closing in all the corridors," Webb said. "We need to get the lines on the map."

What they need is mass transit. Rail lines and buses. More highways isn't going to help.

The SE corner of Prosper is now included in one proposal of the planned US 380 bypass, which has shocked and surprised nearby residents, who originally thought none of the potential work would include land inside Prosper.
