(March 6, 2014) Update: The previously announced traffic switch at Stonebrook Parkway and Parkwood Boulevard has been rescheduled for Friday, March 7.
Traffic will be switched at the intersection of Stonebrook Parkway and Parkwood Boulevard so that it will return to normal operations on Friday, March 7. In addition, two through lanes will be opened to traffic in both directions on Stonebrook Parkway between Preston Road and Dallas Parkway. The specifics of each traffic switch are described below:
Currently, both directions of traffic on Stonebrook Parkway and on Parkwood Boulevard share one half of the road as they pass through the intersection. Starting tomorrow after 10 a.m., traffic on Stonebrook Parkway will be shifted so that east and westbound traffic will flow on opposite sides of the median. Similarly, traffic on Parkwood Boulevard will be switched so that north and southbound traffic will flow on opposite sides of the median.
This means that the intersection of Stonebrook Parkway and Parkwood Boulevard will return to normal operations with traffic flowing on opposite sides of the median in all directions and separate left-turn lanes being provided. The traffic signal will also begin operating in the typical fashion for a major intersection. After the traffic switch, motorists are urged to use caution in the area as people become accustomed to the new traffic patterns.
By the end of the day on Friday, two through lanes will be opened to traffic in each direction on Stonebrook Parkway between Preston Road and Dallas Parkway. The third lane in each direction will open in the next several months as the adjacent work is completed in each section of the roadway.
Motorists are urged to use caution in the area tomorrow during the traffic switches and to watch for flaggers. Motorists should expect delays at the intersection of Stonebrook Parkway and Parkwood Boulevard during the middle of the day and are urged to seek an alternative route during that time.
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. Detailed information about the project, including estimated completion dates, can be found online at FriscoTexas.gov/Stonebrook.
