This is a petition to show support for creating a Truck Route through the Towns of Prosper and Celina Texas whereby the route would require all heavy trucks to remain on SH 289 (Preston) and SH 380 and off of our secondary and local road systems (i.e. FM 1461, Prosper Trail...).
The continual increase in heavy truck traffic on these roads is creating safety, noise and maintenance issues that impact the quality of life residents enjoy. These issues also create a decrease in both property values and attractiveness for potential residents considering the area.
Both SH 289 and SH 380 are engineered and designed for heavy traffic of all types and are the proper route that heavy trucks should use while in transit through our towns. The usage of secondary routes or 'short-cuts' provides only a very small benefit in times savings for the truckers (typically less than 5 minutes saved) and is in no way a necessity or required path for transit.
