Myth 2: The routes are already chosen, there is nothing we can do now.
Truth 2: The NCTCOG Engineering recommendation, is just that, a recommendation. This is the FIRST STEP! NOT THE LAST!
First, the NCTCOG itself has stated consistently and repeatedly that these routes are general paths, not final alignments, and they can vary as much as 5 miles in some areas.
Second, these recommendations can be totally or partially rejected or accepted by the municipalities of Collin County. At the time of publishing, the NCTCOG is still looking for consensus from Collin County Elected Officials; and that is not going well due to numerous concerns from several cities.
