5 Plano road construction projects to know in late February

0

1. Plano Parkway-Preston Road intersection
Crews were expected to open newly constructed eastbound lanes on Plano Parkway in late February as part of the project to remake the major intersection where the major thoroughfare meets Preston Road. The new lanes, built in the large median next to their westbound counterparts, are expected to streamline traffic, reducing the intersection to a single-traffic-signal setup instead of two. The city’s engineering department expects lane closures on Preston to last through March as crews continue to work on that stretch of road.
Timeline: December 2017-April 2019
Cost: $5 million
Funding sources: city, state and federal sources

2. Ohio Drive and McDermott Road intersection project
Crews began work in early February on a project to add turn lanes and pedestrian-related enhancements to the intersection of Ohio Drive and McDermott Road. When the project is completed, the intersection will feature dual left-turn lanes on northbound and southbound Ohio Drive as well as dedicated right-turn lanes on northbound Ohio and westbound McDermott.
Timeline: February-July
Cost: $850,000
Funding source: city of Plano

3. Legacy Drive repairs
Crews are repairing pavement and sidewalks along an eastern portion of Legacy Drive from Alma Drive to Chase Oaks Boulevard. They were expected to work on eastbound and westbound lanes. The total project was initially expected to last about nine months and stretch from Custer Road to K Avenue, but it was delayed due to weather. One lane will remain closed at all times in construction areas with an additional lane closed from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Timeline: February 2018-May 2019
Cost: $2.3 million
Funding source: city of Plano

4. Spring Creek Parkway repairs
Crews have moved to a stretch of Spring Creek Parkway from Blue Ridge Trail to Rainier Road. 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: January-March
Cost: $358,000
Funding source: city of Plano

5. 15th Street repairs
Crews have begun to repair a section of 15th Street stretching from Custer Road to Alma Drive. The project, which will include the eastbound and westbound lanes, consists primarily of pavement repairs. 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.
Timeline: January-April
Cost: $300,000
