McKINNEY (June 9, 2015) — Weather permitting, northbound U.S. 75 will be closed between Virginia Parkway and Eldorado Parkway for bridge work on the Eldorado Parkway bridge. The closures will be from 9 p.m. through 6 a.m. the nights of Tuesday, June 9 and Wednesday, June 10.
- U.S. 75 Northbound Main Lane Traffic Switch to Happen
TxDOT will close the northbound main lanes of U.S. 75 from Eldorado Parkway to U.S. 380 starting at 10 p.m. tonight, June 9, to switch northbound main lane traffic to newly constructed concrete travel lanes. Northbound drivers will be diverted to the frontage road south of Eldorado Parkway then under Eldorado Parkway then through the intersections at Virginia Parkway, White Avenue, and U.S. 380 to the entrance ramp near Bray Central Drive. All lanes are scheduled to be open again by 6 a.m. After the switch is complete, all northbound entrance and exit ramps south of White Avenue will be complete and open permanently.
- U.S. 75 Southbound Main Lane Closure
TxDOT will close the southbound main lanes of U.S. 75 beneath Eldorado Parkway starting at 10 p.m. tonight, June 9, to set bridge deck panels for the new Eldorado Parkway Bridge. Southbound drivers will be diverted to the frontage road near Rockhill Road then under Eldorado Parkway then along the frontage road to the entrance ramp south of Ridgeview Drive. All lanes are scheduled to be open again by 6 a.m. tomorrow.
Detours will be marked and local police will assist with the lane closures and directing traffic. As a reminder, this TxDOT construction project to widen U.S. 75 from the SRT 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. Backups are expected and motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes.
