Traffic switch between Parkwood Boulevard and Preston Road to continue for about a year
(October 27, 2012) Phase 2 of the Stonebrook Parkway Improvement Project begins on Monday, October 29, when westbound traffic on Stonebrook Parkway will be switched to the south side of the road between Parkwood Boulevard and Preston Road. The traffic switch will begin at 9 a.m. and is expected to take several hours. Motorists are urged to use caution in the area during the traffic switch and to watch for flaggers... view the project map.
After the switch, east and westbound traffic will share the southern half of the road and will be separated by a center lane that will be used for left-turns in both directions. Motorists should pay special attention to the new lane striping on the road that defines the operation of these three lanes (for example, motorists should not use the center lane unless they are making a left-turn at the next intersection).
During this phase of the project, east and westbound traffic on Stonebrook Parkway will each be limited to one lane between Parkwood Boulevard and Preston Road. Therefore, motorists should expect delays on Stonebrook Parkway, especially during the morning and afternoon peak periods. It is anticipated that traffic will remain in this pattern for about a year while the northern half of the road is dug up to install a water line and then reconstructed.
To avoid delays, motorists are encouraged to choose an alternate route in advance. Alternate east/west routes between Preston Road and the Dallas North Tollway are Main Street and Lebanon Road. Wade Boulevard is another option for travel between Preston Road and Parkwood Boulevard.
This is part of the Stonebrook Parkway Improvement Project between Preston Road and the Dallas North Tollway that will widen the road to a six-lane, divided roadway and includes the extension of an underground water line. Phase 2 will reconstruct westbound Stonebrook Parkway to provide three lanes between Preston and Parkwood and will install a new 36-inch water line under the new pavement. The four phases of construction are estimated to continue through December 2014. Information about the project can be found online at FriscoTexas.gov/Stonebrook.
