A Thoroughfare Plan is a transportation planning tool which provides guidance on configuring the transportation system to support the community's future needs and is the long-range plan for major transportation facilities for Ellis County.
The last update was conducted in 2007 but a lot has changed since then. The County population has grown exponentially and with more growth headed to Ellis County, we wanted to take a look at the county as a whole and develop recommendations to assist with transportation issues. Ellis County has hired Freese & Nichols, Inc. to update its Master Thoroughfare Plan. This update will give reasonable long-term guidance to County officials and should be reviewed on a regular basis and updated every five to ten years to reflect changes in growth and development.
