Road Construction Updates

Make driving through Plano easier with frequent updates on traffic and major construction projects from the City of Plano and WAZE.

CENTRAL EXPRESSWAY (U.S. 75) & PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH TURNPIKE INTERSECTION

The Texas Department of Transportation is working in cooperation with the North Texas Tollway Authority, Dallas Area Rapid Transit, and the North Central Texas Council of Governments to address recurring traffic congestion along North and South U.S. 75 to and from the President George Bush Turnpike. The limits of the project stretch from the interchange to Park Blvd. Various lanes closure may occur on the main lanes and frontage roads of US 75 in both directions between PGBT all the way to Parker Road and Plano Parkway between Accent Drive and Taylor Drive. Estimated completion date is July 2019.

  • On Friday, July 12th, both the westbound and eastbound connectors along the PGBT that connect to northbound US 75 will be closed beginning at 8 p.m. The eastbound ramp connector will be closed until Tuesday, July 16th at 5 a.m. The westbound ramp connector will be closed until Saturday, July 20th at 5 a.m. Detour routes will be provided. These closures are necessary for TxDOT to complete remaining pavement placement for the PGBT to US 75 Connector project. Expected completion is 7-20-19.

NTTA IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS: SAM RAYBURN TOLLWAY, DALLAS NORTH TOLLWAY, PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH TURNPIKE

The North Texas Tollway Authority is working on various improvement projects that will accommodate our rapidly growing population. NTTA is adding lanes to all of its roads in the Plano area; the Dallas North Tollway (DNT), President George Bush Turnpike (PGBT) and the Sam Rayburn Tollway (SRT). 

  • Construction on the new fourth lane of the entire 26-miles of the SRT began in January 2019 and will require various single lane closures from time to time. Most of this work will take place within the center median and should cause little disruption to drivers. In addition to these single lane closures, the following work is scheduled that could impact drivers: 
    • Columns are now being constructed at the intersections of Main Street/Josey Lane. U-turn closures are needed between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. during the week for this work through July 31. 
    • The north-to-southbound U-turn lane at Parkwood Boulevard will be closed daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. through mid-July.
    • The U-turn lanes at Preston Road are closed daily as crew work on drainage in the area through July 21.
    • Work on the SRT bridge over the Preston Road interchange has begun. Lane closures will be needed in the overnight hours in late July.
    • Columns construction at the intersection of Coit Road is ongoing. The Coit Road U-turn lanes will be closed daily between 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the week through July 21.
  • On the PGBT, construction to add one lane in each direction from the DNT to Interstate 35E is ongoing. Most of this work will take place within the center median and should cause little disruption to drivers. 
    • On July 1, the eastbound fourth lane was opened to traffic from Frankford Road to the DNT. Eastbound drivers now have four lanes beginning from Frankford Road in Carrollton to SH 78 in Garland.
