City of Melissa Texas 2015 Comprehensive Plan Update Page 5.4 Chapter 5 Transportation Plan State Highway 121 State Highway 121 travels through Melissa in a northeastern direction. It provides regional access to and from Melissa from Fort Worth to Bonham northeast of the City. This highway has become a major transportation route within the Metroplex in recent years. The accessibility of developments along State Highway 121 is largely dependent on its ultimate configuration through Melissa. Currently it is an at-grade highway but it may be raised to allow for more travel lanes in the future. This will affect future land development along it. Regardless this highway provides good opportunities for nonresidential development. A variety of nonresidential uses have been recommended along State Highway 121 including retail mixed use and industrial. Some residential uses have also been recommended with appropriate buffering elements. State Highway 5 State Highway 5 travels through Melissa in a northern direction parallel to the railroad line and likely because of its association with the railroad it is the roadway along which the City first developed. This highway provides for semi-regional access from the city of Howe north of Melissa to the city of Allen. Locally this highway is known as McKinney Street. It is along this highway that Melissas new Town Center is located. This is a good location that will allow for the Town Center to be both visible and accessible. Also significant in terms of land use is the fact that the Citys Old Town area is adjacent to State Highway 5 which may provide a catalyst for the areas redevelopment discussed in detail within the City Center Concept Plan Chapter 8. Another important land use concept in relation to this highway is the recommended Transit-Oriented Development TOD that is envisioned adjacent to the planned light rail stop. Although the TOD is intended to be a pedestrian-oriented area it will need the visibility and accessibility provided by State Highway 5 to truly become a dense urban environment. Other land uses recommended along State Highway 5 include retail commercial and industrial. Some residential uses with buffering have also been recommended.
