Richardson Redevelopment

Richardson Redevelopment As a mature suburb with limited undeveloped land, Richardson's planning efforts have begun to focus on reinvestment opportunities and individual efforts to revitalize private property.

The City of Richardson is creating a strategy for redevelopment and revitalization of Main Street and the Central Expressway Corridor–Richardson’s original downtown and the major access route to the community, its business areas and neighborhoods. This project implements the 2009 Richardson Comprehensive Plan, which identified the Main Street area and the Central Expressway Corridor as two of six target redevelopment zones. The study is underway now and is expected to be complete by the end of 2012. Public involvement is an important part of this effort, so interested individuals and organizations are encouraged to learn more about the project and become involved in shaping a successful new future for these important parts of the Richardson community. We’ve created this community page so that people can follow the project, provide comments to the study team and chat with other interested residents. We will use this page to announce events and spread the word about project activities and events. For more information about the project, including the study area and background, check out the project’s website. http://www.cor.net/index.aspx?page=1438.

The Richardson Core District has developed an updated parking map with street closures for Main Street. Traffic has shifted to the north side of Main Street as work begins on the south side.

With the traffic change on Main Street, we have an updated parking map as you come down to visit our amazing small businesses! N Texas and N McKinney Streets are now open for easy access to the north parking lot. New on-street parking has also been added to Polk Street as you visit the shops and restaurants on the south side of Main Street. Keep supporting our Main Street businesses as construction continues. We’re halfway there!

Lane reductions remain intact at the intersections of Greenville Avenue at Main Street and Main Street and Interurban Street. Both areas have only one lane of traffic in both directions.

We continue to encourage you to seek alternate routes for your daily travels.

Current construction is in Phase 1 of 5 to complete the Main Street Infrastructure projects. The current phase will be in place until April of this year. The goal of this phase is to replace needed utilities and replace paving on the north side of Main Street and the west side of Greenville Avenue.

We sincerely hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and we look forward to a wonderful 2020.

If you have questions related to this project, please call 972-744-4280.

Yesterday Greenville Avenue was reduced to one lane in either direction moving traffic to the northbound side. This traffic shift begins near the entrance of the Public Safety Campus on the north side and extends to Polk Street to the south. Asphalt mining will begin Friday and sanitary work will begin next week along Greenville Avenue.

Traffic remains reduced to one lane in either direction along Main Street at Interurban Street.

Construction will cease on December 24 and 25 so that all involved with the Main Street Infrastructure Project may spend time with their families for the holiday season.

We continue to strongly encourage you to seek alternate routes as you traverse the US 75 area.

We are sending the Main Street Infrastructure Project Weekly Update early this week to strongly encourage you to seek alternate routes as major construction is now completely underway.

Traffic is now reduced to one lane in either direction along Main Street at Interurban Street. This segment of construction will last approximately six months.

In addition to the lane reductions along Main Street, next week will bring additional reductions at Greenville Avenue and Main street; traffic will be reduced to one lane in either direction. This traffic switch will remain in place for two to three months.

Potential alternate routes for daily commutes and traversing of the Main Street area include the use of Spring Valley Road, Arapaho Road, and Polk Street.

If you have questions related to this project, please call 972-744-4280.

Thank you for understanding the sudden change in lane closures earlier this week.

Work continues on the water line construction at Main Street and Interurban Street. This construction prevents left turns for northbound and southbound traffic.

Please be reminded that the first major traffic impacts will begin next Tuesday, December 10, 2019. Traffic will be reduced to one lane in either direction at Main Street and Interurban Street. The flow of traffic is depicted below; the red area indicates construction. Traffic will traverse both ways in the two southernmost lanes of Main Street between Interurban Street and Abrams Road.

We strongly suggest that you seek alternate routes for daily commutes. Spring Valley Road and Arapaho Road would be better options should you need to travel east and west throughout Richardson.

As this is a major infrastructure project, construction will continue through the first quarter of 2021.

If you have questions related to this project, please call 972-744-4280.

Richardson Redevelopment

Since adoption of the 2009 Comprehensive Plan, the City of Richardson has been purposeful in its implementation of the Plan and committed to the on-going refinement of key tactics to ensure the city's best possible future. Most recently, efforts have been concentrated within multiple Enhancement/Redevelopment Areas and in promoting transit-oriented development near the DART rail stations.

The 2009 Comprehensive Plan designated six Enhancement / Redevelopment Areas, acknowledging that these areas were under-performing and in need of further analysis in order to develop appropriate visions for each and tailor strategies that will effectively leverage public and private investment. Community-based, market-supported vision studies have been completed for the Main Street/Central Expressway Corridor (2013) and West Spring Valley Corridor (2010). New land use and development regulations, which over time will result in the built visions for both corridors, have also been adopted. The Main Street/Central Expressway Corridor was rezoned in two phases during 2015 and 2016, and the West Spring Valley Corridor was rezoned in 2011.

Major capital and infrastructure improvements are currently taking place along the Main Street/Central Expressway Corridor, which includes the construction of a new Public Safety Complex with public art. In addition, a street, pedestrian, and landscaping improvement project along Main Street will soon commence. By the year 2020, the look and feel of Downtown Richardson will be dramatically enhanced with new pedestrian-friendly improvements, extensive landscaping, and overhead utility relocation.

Additionally, a market area assessment was completed for the East Arapaho/Collins area in 2013 that served as the basis for additional work undertaken by the Chamber of Commerce during 2016. In 2018, the City of Richardson kicked off the Collins/Arapaho Innovation District and Transit-Oriented Development Study to build on the recommendations from the Chamber of Commerce. It is the City’s desire to maximize the potential for transit-oriented development in proximity to the Arapaho Center Station and reposition the area as a successful innovation district that is an economic driver within the City and DFW region.
