Start of the  million revitalization of Main Street in Frisco, Texas
Start of the  million revitalization of Main Street in Frisco, Texas

The City of Frisco will begin a major phase of its downtown revitalization efforts on Monday, July 8, with the start of construction on Main Street. The goal of this ambitious project is to transform the historic thoroughfare into a vibrant downtown area and increase its appeal to residents and visitors.

The project extends from 1st to 3rd streets and will require the removal of curbside parking throughout the downtown area. Traffic patterns will be adjusted and eastbound vehicles will be rerouted to the north side of Main Street, where they will share lanes with westbound vehicles during construction.

“Main Street will never be closed,” said Jason Brodigan, PE, director of technical services, in an official statement. “We are committed to keeping at least one lane open in each direction at all times.”

The initiative, which is expected to take about 18 months to build and cost about $20 million, is in line with the broader Downtown Frisco Master Plan adopted by the City Council in 2018. Mayor Jeff Cheney emphasized the city’s vision to create a dynamic urban core, with an emphasis on creating community spaces and cultural venues.

As previously reported by Local profile, Mayor Jeff Cheney emphasized the importance of revitalizing the downtown area at the Frisco Rail District groundbreaking. “Every global city has a great downtown area,” Cheney said. He emphasized that the project aims to preserve the historic essence of the Rail District while creating modern amenities and attractions. “This will be a neighborhood where life seems to slow down, where you just want to walk and stroll, go to a restaurant and shop or hear live music.”

The comprehensive downtown renewal project, valued at over $68 million, includes improvements beyond Main Street, such as the completion of Elm Street, the development of 4th Street Plaza and the construction of a new parking garage.

“Our traffic patterns will change from time to time,” Brodigan said. “But it’s always helpful for everyone if you slow down and pay special attention to ongoing construction.”

The downtown redevelopment project is expected to be completed in early 2026. For more information on the project’s progress, visit the official website by clicking here.
