Parking changes and concrete repairs are planned for two Plano roadways.

Plano City Council authorized a concrete repair contract worth over $3.3 million with Garret Shields Infrastructure, LLC for a section of Parker Road and the creation of a no-parking zone on Kimbrough Lane during its June 10 meeting.

Two-minute impact

A no-parking zone is now in effect along the northern portion of Kimbrough Lane between Coit Road and Berwick Drive. According to city documents, parked vehicles on the north side of the road impede traffic and create sight issues for motorists.

The other project affects a 1.5-mile segment of Parker Road between Independence Parkway and Country Place Drive. Per city documents, repairs include:
  • 18,700 square yards of concrete street
  • 31,500 square feet of sidewalk
  • The addition of 80 barrier-free ramps
Looking ahead

According to a city news release, construction on Parker Road is set to begin in July. Concrete repairs along the roadway are in preparation for the application of an asphalt overlay set to take place next year.
