As part of the nearly complete TxDOT project to widen U.S. 75 from the Sam Rayburn Tollway (SRT) to White Avenue in McKinney, TxDOT has informed the City of the following closure:

  • Southbound U.S. 75 Entrance Ramp North of Virginia Parkway to be Closed on Jan. 20 and 21

Weather permitting, TxDOT plans to close the southbound U.S. 75 entrance ramp located north of Virginia Parkway from Wednesday, Jan. 20, at 9 a.m. until Thursday, Jan. 21, at 9 a.m. for concrete repair. During the closure, drivers can continue south on the frontage road through the Virginia Parkway intersection to the entrance ramp located north of Eldorado Parkway. The U.S. 75 main lanes and frontage roads are expected to remain open throughout the day.

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 nearly complete.

Please be safe when traveling through the work zone and always observe traffic warning signs.
