Frisco TX Preston Rd/Eldorado Parkway Construction update

by Loreena Yeo on September 7, 2010

It is difficult to drive around Frisco TX without noticing the road construction projects that go on. As part of the city’s efforts to grow and expand, road construction is inevitable.

Frisco TX Road ConstructionFrisco TX has been the fastest growing city of the past decade (2000 – 2009) according to the US Census Bureau. A little over 33,000 residents called Frisco TX home back in 2000 and today, September 2010, Frisco TX has just surpassed its 110,000 residents.

Preston Road is the main thoroughfare here in Frisco TX. Major lifestyle conveniences such as grocery stores, restaurants, shopping and the Stonebriar Mall (largest in North Texas) is located along Preston Road.

Preston Road passed Main Street is undergoing major road construction and it is a TXDot funded project. Many Frisco TX residents along with residents in Prosper, Celina, Gunter and other smaller cities up north of Frisco uses Preston Road to commute daily.

For the longest time, Preston Road north of Main Street to US HWY 380 has been a 2-lane road (one North-bound and one South-bound). In late 2009, TXDot began actual road construction to widen Preston Road. At the end, Preston Road will be a high-traffic and growth corridor.

This project will cost $35 million and is expected to complete by Spring 2012. Until then, Frisco TX residents who use Preston Road to commute daily will have to endure road construction and frequent road closures. Some alternate routes include Custer Road, Independence Parkway, Hillcrest, FM 423, Tollway and Legacy Drive until Preston Road is back and fully operational again.

Eldorado Parkway is another major lane in Frisco TX on the north side. Parts of Eldorado Parkway is now widen into 6 lanes and plans to continue this effort from Coit Road to Rogers Road (just west of Preston). This project is funded by the City of Frisco and is expected to complete by end of Summer 2011.

Traffic patterns on Eldorado Parkway on this stretch has changed and motorists have been asked to use caution when driving on this street. This temporary configuration is expected to last approximately 6 months.

It will be worse before it gets better, folks! But when it does, we’d be rocking in Frisco TX!!!!
