WHAT IS A THOROUGHFARE PLAN?
A Thoroughfare Plan is a transportation planning tool that provides guidance on configuring the transportation system to support the community's future needs and is the long-range plan for major transportation facilities. IT IS NOT A SET OF APPROVED CONSTRUCTION PLANS.
For Ellis County, the last update was in 2007 but a lot has changed since then. The population has grown exponentially and with more growth headed towards Ellis County, we wanted to look at the county as a whole and develop recommendations to assist with those transportation issues. Ellis County hired Freese & Nichols, Inc. to update its Master Thoroughfare Plan. This update gives reasonable long-term guidance to County officials and will be reviewed regularly and updated approximately every 5-7 years to reflect changes in growth and development.
