Multiple roads will be closed around Frisco Square on July 2-4 for Frisco Freedom Fest, the city announced. Events on July 3 and July 4 will require the closure of different streets on different days.

“Even with these procedures in place, motorists should be prepared for the extra time it will take to exit the area since so many people will be leaving at the same time after the fireworks show,” a news release from the city said.

Drivers are also encouraged to download the Waze navigation app to drive around road closures.

Closures throughout the weekend

Several streets around the George A. Purefoy Municipal Center will remain closed July 2-4.



Frisco Square Boulevard is closed between Church Street and Frisco Street, which includes the plaza in front of the municipal center and the Frisco Public Library.

Coleman Boulevard is closed at the north side of the plaza. Library Street is also closed between Page Street and Frisco Square Boulevard. Drivers are not able to enter or circulate around the plaza these days.

Visitors to City Hall and the library are encouraged to park in the free parking garage behind the municipal center, which is accessible from Page Street.

July 3 closures

The city library will be closed on July 3, and in addition to the aforementioned road closures, more road closures will occur at 6 p.m. to accommodate plaza events and the Hotter 'n Firecrackers 5K and Glow Run.

The entire plaza in front of City Hall and the library will be closed. Library Street will be closed between Frisco Square Boulevard and Cotton Gin Road, and Cotton Gin Road will be closed between Dallas Parkway and Library Street.

Event participants can park in the parking garage behind the municipal building or in the parking garage west of Coleman Boulevard.

The city recommends residents and customers of Coleman Boulevard use Main Street and Coleman Boulevard to access parking areas behind Frisco Square businesses. Residents who live east of Library Street should use Main and John W. Elliott Drive.

Page Street, Library Street and Cotton Gin Road will reopen by 11 p.m. July 3, but the full closure of the plaza in front of the municipal center will continue into July 4.

July 4 closures

A map of road closures on July 4 can be found here.

Coleman Boulevard will be closed starting at 8 a.m. on July 4 and will remain closed for the rest of the day. Frisco Square residents and customers will need to use parking areas behind Frisco Square businesses. The east Frisco Square parking lot will only be accessible from a driveway on eastbound Main.

Page Street will be closed between Jacobs and Burlington Streets starting at 2 p.m. Residents who live along Page Street should use Burnham Street as an alternate route.

Eastbound Main and eastbound Cotton Gin Road—between Legacy Drive and Dallas Parkway—will be closed at 9:30 p.m. to move traffic more efficiently out of Toyota Stadium and Frisco Square following the festival and fireworks, the city said. Both roads should be open again by about midnight, according to the city.

The intersection at Dallas Parkway and Main will be partially closed between 9:30 p.m. and midnight to allow traffic to flow in certain directions away from the event. During this time, motorists will not be able to use this intersection to approach the Frisco Square area.

Southbound Frisco Street will be closed between Sports Village Road and Main between 9:30 p.m. and midnight.

Freedom Fest attendees can reference this exit route map.

July 4 parking

The parking garage behind the municipal center will be closed to the public all day except for those with placards for handicapped-accessible parking.

Those who attend Frisco Freedom Fest will need to park and ride a shuttle service from either Frisco High School or Frisco Discovery Center to Frisco Square.

Only FC Dallas soccer game ticketholders are allowed to park at Toyota Stadium.
