2019 Thoroughfare Plan Update

Thoroughfare Logo

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.
