Make driving through Plano easier with frequent updates on traffic and major construction projects from the City of Plano and WAZE.

CENTRAL EXPRESSWAY (U.S. 75) & PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH TURNPIKE INTERSECTION

NTTA IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS: SAM RAYBURN TOLLWAY, DALLAS NORTH TOLLWAY, PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH TURNPIKE
The North Texas Tollway Authority is working on various improvement projects that will accommodate our rapidly growing population.  NTTA is adding lanes to all of its roads in the Plano area; the Dallas North Tollway (DNT), President George Bush Turnpike (PGBT) and the Sam Rayburn Tollway (SRT).

  • Construction on the new fourth lane of the entire 26-miles of the SRT began in January 2019 and will require various single lane closures from time to time.  Most of the work will take place within the center median and should cause little disruption to drivers.  In addition to these single lane closures, the following work is scheduled that could impact drivers:
    • The U-turn lanes at Parkwood Boulevard and Coit Road are closed continuously through mid-December for column construction.
    • As crews construct foundations and columns at various intersections, U-turns and the right lanes of the city streets beneath the SRT will be closed daily from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and nightly from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Work is ongoing currently at:
      • Parkwood Boulevard
      • Preston Road
      • Hillcrest Road/Rasor Boulevard
      • Coit Road
    • Beams will be placed at Coit Road later this week. During this work, the intersection will be closed to traffic. Once exact dates and times are determined, a traffic advisory and detour map will be sent out.
    • Crews are planning to place the concrete deck for a portion of the bridge expansion over the Hillcrest Road/Rasor Boulevard intersection later this month, weather permitting. During this work, all lanes of Legacy Drive beneath the SRT and two main lanes on the bridge will be closed in each direction. Once exact dates and times are determined, a traffic advisory and detour map will be sent out.
  • On the PGBT, construction to add one lane in each direction from the DNT to Belt Line Road in Irving is ongoing.  Most of this work will take place within the center median and should cause little disruption to drivers.
