Check out these updates on three road projects in McKinney.

1. East Virginia Street and Throckmorton Street reconstruction

Project: Improvements planned include reconstruction of the roadway as well as underground utility work, roadway illumination and improvements to the hardscape and landscape, according to a presentation at a Dec. 5 council meeting. The work will also include adding a single lane roundabout at the intersection of the two roadways.

Update: East Virginia Street will remain closed throughout the duration of the project, according to city documents. The closure will allow crews to make up time lost due to prior construction delays. A temporary driveway will be constructed to allow access to the parking lot at the Flour Mill. Detours will be routed along East Louisiana Street. Portions of the roadway may be reopened as construction continues.
