Ongoing projects


1. Lane closures on Jupiter Road South of Springpark Way

All southbound lanes on the Jupiter Road bridge over Spring Creek, located between Springpark Way and Heather Hill Drive, will be closed to traffic for bridge rehabilitation work. While work is underway, the northbound lanes will be converted to allow for two-way traffic. The work is expected to last about 60 days, weather permitting. Due to the volume of traffic on Jupiter Road, motorists are encouraged to find an alternate route while repairs are taking place. Alternate routes could include Plano Road to the west and Shiloh Road to the east.
