4 Plano road projects to know about in November

1

1. Plano Parkway-Preston Road intersection

Traffic disruptions intensified in October at the intersection of Plano Parkway and Preston Road as crews close lanes and worked to widen Preston Road near the major intersection. Since December most of the construction had been confined to the intersection’s large median, where crews were building new eastbound lanes that will run closer to their westbound counterparts and allow for more separation between the intersection and President George Bush Turnpike to the south. The Plano engineering department expected most of the traffic slowdowns to continue through December. The most intensive work is expected to take place from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on weekdays.
Timeline: December 2017-March 2019
Cost: $5 million
Funding source: city, state and federal sources

2. Park Boulevard repairs

The city is conducting a series of road surface repairs along Park Boulevard from K Avenue to P Avenue. The project will include the eastbound and westbound lanes. One lane will remain closed at all times in construction areas with an additional lane closed from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on weekdays and some Saturdays.
Timeline: April-December
Cost: $200,000

3. Alma Drive repairs

Crews are expected to move in November to a stretch of Alma Drive extending from Hedgcoxe Road to Baxter Drive for pavement repairs. The work is expected to affect northbound and southbound lanes. One lane will remain closed at all times in construction areas with an additional lane closed from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on weekdays and some Saturdays.
