TxDOT to Temporarily Close Southbound U.S. 75 Exit Ramp to Virginia Pkwy.
Weather permitting, TxDOT will close the southbound U.S. 75 exit ramp to Virginia Pkwy. beginning Monday night, July 7, until sometime in August in order to construct a portion of the southbound main lanes pavement. Detour signs have been posted directing motorists to instead use the southbound exit ramp to U.S. 380. See detour map at left.
This may increase congestion at the intersection of U.S. 75 and U.S. 380. Motorists should expect delays and are encouraged to use alternate routes.
TxDOT to Temporarily Close Rockhill Rd. at the Southbound U.S. 75 Frontage Road
Weather permitting, TxDOT will close Rockhill Rd. at the southbound U.S. 75 frontage road beginning Monday, July 7 until Tuesday, July 15 in order to construct the intersection. Detour signs will be posted directing motorists to an alternate route.
TxDOT has Temporarily Closed Rockhill Rd. at the Northbound U.S. 75 Frontage Road
TxDOT has closed Rockhill Rd. at the northbound U.S. 75 frontage road until approximately Friday, July 11 in order to construct the intersection. Detour signs have been posted directing motorists to an alternate route.
As a reminder, this TxDOT construction project to widen U.S. 75 from the Sam Rayburn Tollway to White Avenue in McKinney to four main lanes in each direction and three frontage road lanes in each direction will provide much needed extra capacity through McKinney. The project is anticipated to be complete in January 2016.
Please be safe when traveling through the work zone and always observe traffic warning signs.
