A section of K Avenue in Plano will be closed starting Nov. 11 while work continues on the Dallas Area Rapid Transit Silver Line project.

What’s happening?

Southbound lanes on K Avenue will be closed from Nov. 10-13 while crews work on the K Avenue railroad crossing, according to a city news release. The road will be closed between 14th Street and Plano Parkway.

The closure was planned for Oct. 20-23, but "an emergency elsewhere on the track" caused DART to delay the construction, a Plano city official said.

Work on the crossing will begin after the morning commute Nov. 10; work will end before the evening commute Nov. 13, according to the release.

The background

The Silver Line is an over $2 billion commuter rail spanning 26 miles from Plano to the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. Plano will be home to two stations on Shiloh Road and 12th Street.

Service for the commuter rail is expected to begin between late 2025 and mid-2026.
