Two of Allen’s biggest roadway projects are on track to open this spring. The Montgomery Boulevard extension, which runs from Bethany Drive to US 75, is expected to open as scheduled in April. Crews are installing beams in January and plan to pour the bridge deck in February. Final paving will be completed in March.
The Ridgeview Drive extension is also on track for a March completion. The four-lane divided roadway will connect existing two-lane roads between Alma Drive and Stacy Road. Barring weather delays, crews should be able to complete pavement work in February.
The construction of Ridgeview Drive represents a partnership with Collin County. The City of Allen and Collin County are each bearing fifty percent of the cost of the project.
