A new construction project on Plano Parkway is expected to begin in June.

The one-year project will span from the Dallas North Tollway to Preston Road, and is expected to be less intensive than the completed intersection project that began in 2017 where Plano Parkway meets Preston.

The earliest part of the project will start between Winding Hollow Lane and Preston Road.

One lane will be closed at all times during the project, with an additional lane closed weekdays from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

Timeline: June 2020-June 2021


Cost: $3.5 million

Funding source: city of Plano
