As part of the ongoing Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) project to widen U.S. 75, TxDOT has informed the City of McKinney of the need for the complete closure of Greenwood Road between U.S. 75 and Redbud Boulevard.
Updated Closure Dates
While TxDOT initially expected the closure to begin Aug. 16 and last through mid-September, those dates changed.
On Friday, TxDOT informed the City that closure of Greenwood Road is scheduled to start at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 29 and last through 9 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 27.
The closure will impact a small portion of Greenwood Road immediately east of U.S. 75. The U.S. 75 main lanes and frontage road lanes and Redbud Boulevard will remain open. Drivers will be directed around the closure by appropriate detour signage.
U.S. 75 Widening Project Details
The ongoing U.S. 75 widening project is adding capacity to the highway and frontage road lanes from the Sam Rayburn Tollway to White Avenue in McKinney.
The $106 million construction project will add two U.S. 75 main lanes in each direction and one in each direction on the frontage roads. This will give the highway a total of eight main lanes and six frontage road lanes between Spur 399 (SH 121) and U.S. 380.
This is one of several projects either under way, nearing completion or just starting on the Central Expressway corridor through McKinney from SH 121 to Melissa Road.
Construction is expected to be substantially complete in the summer of 2015.
The City of McKinney encourages drivers to be safe when traveling through the work zone and to always observe traffic warning signs. If you have any questions, please contact Danny Still at (972) 547-7631.
