1. Plano Parkway-Preston Road intersection project
A year-and-a-half-long intersection project is expected to come to a close in May as part of an effort to remake the intersection where Plano Parkway meets Preston Road. Crews in March opened the newly constructed eastbound lanes on Plano Parkway. 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. The city’s engineering department expects lane closures on Preston to last through early May. The most intensive work is expected to take place from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on weekdays.
Timeline: December 2017-May 2019
Cost: $5 million
Funding sources: city, state and federal sources

2. Custer Road and Plano Parkway project
Crews are expected to begin a major new intersection project in late April or early May to expand capacity where Custer Road meets Plano Parkway. When the project is complete, the intersection will have dual left-turn lanes and dedicated right-turn lanes in all four directions. The most intensive work will occur from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on weekdays.
Timeline: May-August
Cost: $1.2 million
Funding sources: city and county sources

3. Ohio and McDermott intersection project
Crews continued their work this month on a project to add turn lanes and pedestrian-related enhancements to the intersection of Ohio Drive and McDermott Road in Plano.
