From Preston Road to Spring Creek Parkway: 5 Plano road projects to know in July

0

1. Plano Parkway and Preston Road intersection
After a series of weather-related delays in recent weeks, this year-and-a-half-long intersection project is now expected to come to a close in July. The project has largely remade the intersection where Plano Parkway meets Preston Road. Crews opened the newly constructed eastbound lanes on Plano Parkway in March. The new lanes, built in the large median next to their westbound counterparts, were 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 July as crews continue to work near the median.
Timeline: December 2017-July 2019
Cost: $5 million
Funding sources: city, state, federal

2. Ohio and McDermott intersection
Crews continued 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. When the project is complete, the intersection will feature dual left-turn lanes on northbound and southbound Ohio as well as dedicated right-turn lanes on northbound Ohio and westbound McDermott. Most work is expected to take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays.
