As part of the ongoing TxDOT's project to widen U.S. 75 from the Sam Rayburn Tollway to White Avenue in McKinney, the Texas Department of Transportation has informed the City of McKinney with the following traffic switch that will allow work to continue from Brandon Tomes Subaru to the Summit Park Office Building:
TxDOT to Change Traffic Pattern on the U.S. 75 Southbound Frontage Road at Park View Avenue and Valley Creek Trail
Weather permitting on Saturday, May 31, TxDOT will switch U.S. 75 (Central Expressway) southbound frontage road traffic between North Brook Drive and Country Club Drive to the new overpass at Wilson Creek. Because the frontage road will be shifted up and over Park View Avenue and Valley Creek Trail, access to U.S. 75 will be very different. See detour maps at bottom. Please follow detour signs that will be posted.
With this change, the four traffic signals on Valley Creek Trail and Park View Avenue, where these streets intersect with the frontage roads, will be turned off and new stop signs will be posted. Also, Valley Creek Trail east of U.S. 75 will provide access only to the McKinney Community Center with no other outlet.
Daily closures of Park View Avenue under U.S. 75 will continue and will make access through this area very difficult. Drivers are encouraged to use alternate routes.
Detour maps can also be found at mckinneytexas.org/construction.
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.
