A Plano road project along sections of Independence Parkway is under construction.

Over $8.8 million in funding has been allocated for two projects along Independence Parkway between Spring Creek Parkway and SH 121, Assistant Director of Public Works Carrie Jones said.

The overview

Both projects involve rehabilitation of the existing concrete ahead of a planned asphalt overlay for the section, Jones said. The two segments of the project are Spring Creek Parkway north to Hedgcoxe Road and Hedgcoxe Road north to SH 121.

Total funding for the project is a little over $8.8 million, she added, with around $3.7 million for the Spring Creek Parkway to Hedgcoxe Road portion and about $5.1 million for the Hedgcoxe Road to SH 121 segment. The project is paid for through the Community Investment Program utilizing money earmarked from the 2021 bond.

Looking ahead

Jones said final completion of the project from Spring Creek Parkway to Hedgcoxe Road is planned to be complete in August 2025. The Hedgcoxe Road to SH 121 portion should be completed in February 2026.

If concrete repairs are not completed ahead of summer 2025, Jones said asphalt overlays for the projects would be phased in between the summers of 2025 and 2026.
