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
The Texas Department of Transportation is working in cooperation with the North Texas Tollway Authority, Dallas Area Rapid Transit, and the North Central Texas Council of Governments to address recurring traffic congestion along North and South U.S. 75 to and from the President George Bush Turnpike. The limits of the project stretch from the interchange to Park Blvd. Substantial completion was reached on August 24, 2019. Contact: Dereje Tesemma - Dereje.Tesemma@txdot.gov or 214-927-3983.

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:
    • Beam placement at Legacy Drive will be scheduled for 9:00 p.m. Wednesday, September 18 to 5:00 a.m. Thursday, September 19, weather permitting.  Legacy Drive below the SRT will be closed to traffic during this work.  Detours will be in place.
    • Beam placement at Josey Lane/Main Street will be scheduled for 9:00 p.m. Friday, September 20 to 5:00 a.m. Saturday, September 21, weather permitting. Josey Lane/Main Street below the SRT will be closed to traffic during this work. Detours will be in place.
    • Work on the SRT bridge over the Preston Road interchange is underway.  As work progresses across the bridge, crews will close portions of Preston Road under the SRT, working over one area at a time to lessen the impact to drivers. The work is expected to continue through late September. During closure times, detours are in place.
    • Beams were placed in late August over the intersection of Hillcrest Road/Rasor Boulevard.  Crews are now working on the bridge deck in this area.  The U-turn lanes at Hillcrest Road/Rasor Boulevard will be closed daily from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and nightly from 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.  Additional closures will be needed later this month or in early October for placement of additional beams.
    • Columns construction at the Coit Road intersection is ongoing. The Coit Road U-turn lanes will be closed continuously through the end of September.  
  • 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.
