A big chunk of Richardson’s Telecom Corridor is getting a new name.
Since the early 1990s a stretch of U.S. Highway 75 between LBJ Freeway and Bush Turnpike has been known as the Telecom Corridor – named for the many telecommunications companies that once lined that highway.
These days that’s somewhat of a misnomer, since some of the biggest employers in that area are big insurance firms including State Farm and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas.
Now Richardson is carving out a big section of the Telecom Corridor, which it will call the Innovation Quarter – or Richardson IQ.
