Allen City Council Approves Alma Drive Expansion Project

June 13, 2018 - 5:26 am

ALLEN (1080 KRLD) - After hours of public comment before a packed Allen City Council meeting last night, the council unanimously approved the Alma Drive expansion project, but not everyone is happy.

According to reports, the project will widen Alma Drive near McDermott, making it a 6 lane road instead of 4.

Those against the project say they would like to see improvements that would make the intersection safer but they oppose wideing the road.

The city says widening Alma Drive has always been part of Allen's master plan.

Work on the project is expected to start this summer.
