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

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.
Timeline: February-August
Cost: $850,000
Funding source: city of Plano

3. Parker Road repairs
An 18-month construction project on Parker Road was expected to begin in June from Custer Road to K Avenue. The nearly $4 million project is expected to  last into late 2020. One lane will remain closed at all times in construction areas with an additional lane closed from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays and some Saturdays.
Timeline: June 2019-late 2020
Cost: $3.8 million
Funding source: city of Plano

4. Legacy Drive repairs
Crews are repairing pavement and sidewalks along an eastern portion of Legacy Drive from Chase Oaks Boulevard to US 75. The project was expected to affect eastbound and westbound lanes. One lane will remain closed at all times in construction areas with an additional lane closed from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays.
Timeline: February 2018-July 2019
Cost: $2.3 million
Funding source: city of Plano

5. Spring Creek Parkway repairs
Crews are expected to begin a series of pavement repairs in early July on a portion of Spring Creek Parkway from Ohio Drive to Preston Road. The construction is expected to affect eastbound and westbound lanes. One lane will remain closed at all times in construction areas with an additional lane closed from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays and some Saturdays.
