Learn more about plans to redevelop downtown Frisco at a public Open House. The ‘come and go’ event will feature preliminary renderings depicting a reimagined downtown that is more pedestrian friendly. City staff will be onsite to answer questions.  

Progress continues on the development of conceptual designs to improve streets through Downtown Frisco and to create a 4th Street Plaza. The project is part of the Downtown Master Plan Update (PDF), approved by the City Council in 2018.

Three key elements provide a framework to make the downtown area more pedestrian friendly: 

Phase 1: Elm Street
Phase 2: Main Street 
Phase 3: 4th Street Plaza

Elm Street 
(1st Street to South County Road)
Estimated completion is Q4 2023.

The reconstruction of Elm Street is substantially complete and open to two-way traffic between 1st Street and South County Road. Intermittent panel replacements may continue to occur through December. Drivers are urged to use caution in work zones.

The project will reconstruct Elm Street into a concrete roadway, including: 

  • parallel parking 
  • sidewalk 
  • storm drain
  • street lighting
  • traffic signal improvements (5th/Elm)

Main Street 

(1st Street to South County Road
Construction is anticipated to start in Q2 of 2024. Estimated project completion is April 2026.

  • sidewalk widening
  • removal of parking spaces
  • full depth paving replacement
  • traffic signal improvements (Main/South County)

4th Street Plaza   

The plaza will serve as a pedestrian connection between Elm and Main streets and provide a community gathering space.
The design phase is in progress. Estimated project completion is April 2026.

Notes Concerning Construction Activity

Safety in the project area is a priority. Please respect all signs and construction zones, and slow down when driving by. Barricades will be in place when concrete is poured and as it cures. Avoiding contact with concrete during this process will minimize delays in construction.

Construction schedules change for a number of reasons, sometimes with little notice. Please understand there will be changes. We appreciate your patience.
