McKINNEY (Feb. 6, 2015) — Weather permitting, the direct connection ramp from Sam Rayburn Tollway (SRT) to northbound U.S. 75 will be closed beginning Monday, Feb. 9 through Saturday, April 4. This will be a 24-hour-a-day closure. The closure is to allow construction to continue.

 During that time motorists will detour onto the northbound U.S. 75 frontage road then continue underneath Eldorado Parkway to the next northbound entrance ramp near the movie theater.


SRT traffic headed to U.S. 75 northbound will exit at Eldorado Parkway from the SRT ramp and continue on the northbound frontage road. Traffic will enter U.S. 75 northbound south of Virginia Parkway.

Backups are expected and motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes.

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.
