McKINNEY (May 12, 2014) — The southbound lane closure that was scheduled for Monday night on U.S. 75 (Central Expressway) at Eldorado Parkway has been cancelled due to weather.
The lane closure has been rescheduled for Tuesday night, May 13. Weather permitting, beginning at 9 p.m. through 6 a.m. May 14, all southbound mainlanes and the southbound frontage road will be closed to finish demolition of the west side of the bridge.
Southbound traffic will exit at Eldorado Parkway and drive south on Craig Drive back to the frontage road to re-enter U.S. 75 mainlanes. Click here to view a map of the detour area (.pdf).
Motorists should expect delays and are encouraged to use an alternate route.
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.
