S.H. 5 City Utility Relocation

As part of the  TxDOT S.H. 5 reconstruction project, the City of McKinney must reconstruct water mains and wastewater mains impacted by roadway construction. Due to limited right-of-way within the project area, permanent easements and temporary construction easements are needed in some locations to accommodate these utility improvements. The city plans to complete the utility improvements prior to the start of the TxDOT project.

Estimated Timeline

  • Summer 2022 | Easement acquisitions underway
  • Summer 2022 | Design complete
  • Early 2023 | Construction begins

Project FAQs

1. Will access to my property be impacted during construction?

We will make every effort to have as little impact on property access as possible during construction. When needed, we will place temporary all-weather surfaces to ensure access. Additionally, temporary detours around the construction zone may be necessary to perform work safely.

2.  Why is the city proposing on-street parking along Andrews Street?

TUPPS Brewery is looking to develop the property west of Andrews Street and north of Green Street. On-street parking is proposed to support this economic development and minimize impediments to the flow of traffic.

Municipal Community Complex

In 2019, voters passed a $50 million bond proposition to serve as a major source of funding for a new Municipal Community Complex. 

The current municipal complex is a converted bank building constructed in the 1950s and a Development Services building from the 1960s. The buildings are not large enough to house a growing city and city staff, the city leases additional space around the city. In all, city administrative and parks employees are in nine buildings and at a cost of $650,000 in annual rent. 

The new building would be designed to accommodate the city’s growth for the next generation at a location that would serve as a central gathering space and catalyst for development.

Between Eldorado Pkwy / Industrial Blvd and U.S. 380 S.H. 5 will remain 4-lanes due to limited right-of-way.  However, the road will be reconstructed with a raised center median and turn lanes at specific intersections. The project also includes wide sidewalks and improved stormwater systems

TUPPS Brewery Project

In July 2020, TUPPS Brewery announced it will relocate and expand its campus to the historic Mill District of downtown McKinney. The campus will include a tasting taproom in the original grain milling building, a state-of-the-art production facility, retail shopping featuring local craftsmen, and an entertainment venue. The McKinney Community Development Corporation (MCDC) and the McKinney Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) are contributing to the project.

How will this project benefit the city?

MCDC works in partnership with businesses to promote and fund cultural and economic development projects that maintain and enhance McKinney's quality of life. The TUPPS Brewery relocation and expansion project is an example of great things that come from collaboration and public-private cooperative efforts.

The TUPPS project, which will rehabilitate and revitalize the former McKinney Grain property, will:

  • Accomplish MCDC strategic goals of fostering the redevelopment of the Downtown Historic Cultural District and East McKinney and creating destination retail, dining, and entertainment.
  • Serve as a catalyst for redevelopment on the east side of the city.
  • Create a world-class cultural and entertainment destination for residents and visitors.
  • Facilitate the growth and expansion of TUPPS Brewery.

What is the timeline for this project?

The project is expected to break ground in the first quarter of 2021 and be fully completed by the third quarter of 2022.
