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.

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.
