Roadwork Roundup

Road Work Ahead

Some current roadwork projects include work underway at Paige Road and SH121, as well as South Colony Boulevard, west of Main. All work is weather-permitting. Please drive safe in construction zones. We appreciate your patience!

Paige Road/Plano Parkway and SH 121

City contractors have begun work on a project at the Paige Road/SH121 underpass that will add a second left-turn lane for eastbound SH121 traffic onto northbound Paige Road. The project involves modifying the current U-turn only lane to include a left-turn option. The same modifications will be made for westbound SH121 traffic turning south onto Plano Parkway. Click here for a schematic of the work.

Various lane closures will be necessary during the course of the work, primarily during the day. The project is expected to last through the end of March. Motorists should expect delays in this area and are strongly encouraged to seek alternate routes as possible. Please #DriveSafe in construction zones. Thank you for your patience!
