A major milestone has been reached as part of the ongoing Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) project to widen U.S. 75 from the Sam Rayburn Tollway to White Avenue in McKinney:

On the evening of April 30, traffic was shifted to the newly completed northern portion of the Eldorado bridge and the new northern ramps to allow work to begin on the southern portion of the bridge and the southern ramps. This means that southbound traffic from U.S. 75 can once again enter the Eldorado Plaza shopping center by the La Madeleine driveway, by Craig Drive, and by the Starbucks driveway. Southbound traffic can also reach westbound Eldorado directly by a brand new ramp. On the northbound side, Medical Center Drive now connects to the new ramp by American National Bank.

Maps for the preferred routes to navigate through this reconfigured intersection are available.

As a reminder, this TxDOT construction project to widen U.S. 75 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.
