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, TxDOT has informed the City of McKinney of the following:

U.S. 75 Northbound frontage road at Parkview Ave. to close Monday, May 19 (see map below)

(Traffic from Valley Creek Trail to McKinney High School will be affected)

Weather permitting, on Monday, May 19 at 8:30 a.m. TxDOT will close the U.S. 75 northbound frontage road between the McKinney Community Center and the Cinemark Movies 14 movie theater, generally from Valley Creek Trail to Parkview Ave.

The connection between Valley Creek Trail and Parkview Ave. will be closed during this time, and traffic from Valley Creek Trail will be unable to reach McKinney High School. However, Parkview Ave. will remain open to thru east/west traffic, and to the southbound frontage road. Valley Creek Trail will remain open to the McKinney Community Center and southbound frontage road traffic.

The northbound on ramp to U.S. 75 north of Eldorado Dr. (near Discount Tire) will relocate further north. The northbound Virginia Pkwy./Louisiana St. exit will be temporarily relocated further south, closer to the Cinemark Movies 14 movie theater.

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 now anticipated to be complete in January 2016.

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