- Sustainable Infrastructure Project
This sustainable infrastructure development area is on Louisiana Street within the City of McKinney, generally between State Highway 5 (McDonald Street) and approximately 520 feet east of Murray Street; on Throckmorton Street, generally between Louisiana Street and Virginia Street; and on Greenville Road, generally between Dungan Street and Andrews Street.
The project area is historic and recognized for its role in shaping the early agricultural-industrial history of McKinney. Most of the existing structures adjacent to the project are historic and built between 1890 and 1920 as wholesale and retail grocers. This project will spark the redevelopment vision for the city and is considered the key catalyst moving forward.

This project is the result of a grant awarded in 2010 to the City of McKinney by the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG). The NCTCOG Sustainable Development Competitive Funding Program was created by its policy body, the Regional Transportation Council, to positively address existing transportation system capacity, rail access, air quality concerns, and/or mixed land uses, and to encourage public/private partnerships that foster growth and development in and around historic downtowns, main streets, infill areas, and existing/future passenger rail lines and stations.
This project will include:
- Stormwater, water and wastewater utility improvements
- Street construction, reconstruction and retrofit
- Lane reconfigurations
- Intersection improvements
- Pedestrian amenities (sidewalks, crosswalks, plazas)
- Streetscape elements (street trees and landscaping, street lighting, irrigation, benches, trash receptacles)
- Bike trail connection to Old Settlers Park
