[ARCHIVED] Lane Closures and Road Closures for Half-marathon on Saturday morning, April 15

(April 13, 2023) Several roads will be closed and several lane closures will be implemented on Saturday morning, April 15, for a half-marathon being run in in the southeast quadrant of Frisco. The half-marathon will start and end at Collin College and will close a lane on several major roadways (such as Main St), and will cause delay for traffic on roads that cross the race course (such as Coit Rd). The details of each road and lane closure are described below and are shown in the attached map. In addition, specific detours are described for those living in the neighborhoods along the route.


The lane closures described below will be implemented before 5:00 a.m. on Saturday morning. A couple additional road closures will occur at 7 a.m. as described below. The race begins at 7 a.m. and is expected to end by 11 a.m. All roads will be fully open by 11 a.m. All event staff, volunteers, vendors, runners, and spectators must arrive at the college before 7 a.m. because there will be no vehicular access to Collin College between 7 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. 

As the fastest runners progress through the course in a clockwise direction, traffic will begin to be delayed on Rolater Road at Hillcrest Road at about 7:05 a.m., on Coit Road at Main Street at about 7:15 a.m., and on Independence Parkway at Main Street at about 7:25 a.m. By about 7:45 a.m., traffic will begin to be delayed at the intersection of Rolater Rd and Coit Rd. Drivers using any major roadway that crosses the race route should expect to experience delay during the time of the race. Drivers are urged to seek an alternate route in advance. 

Barricades will be removed and roads will be reopened as soon as the last runners progress clockwise through the course. Therefore, the lane closures along Hillcrest Road will be opened first, followed by Main St and then Custer Rd, etc., until all roads are fully open by 11 a.m. 


 The following roads will be closed to all traffic between 7 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. for the start of the marathon and a 5K race that starts and ends at Collin College. During this time there will be no vehicular access to Collin College. These road wills reopen to traffic at 8:30 a.m., but Ohio Dr will still experience intermittent delay as marathon runners return to the college through 11 a.m. 

  • Ohio Dr closed between Lebanon Rd and Hillcrest Rd
  • Wade Blvd closed between Autumnwood Dr and Ohio Dr 

The half-marathon route runs along several major roadways in southeast Frisco. Each road will remain open to traffic, but will be separated by cones from the runners in the right lane. Most side streets and driveways will be closed next to the lane being used by the runners. Drivers should not turn across the race course at any location that does not have a police officer. The lane closures are described below and are shown in the attached map. 

The right lane of these roadways will be closed Saturday morning:

  • Northbound Ohio Dr between Lebanon and Hillcrest Rd (after being closed to all traffic between 7 a.m. and 8:30 a.m.)
  • Northbound Hillcrest Rd between College Pkwy and Main St
  • Eastbound Main St between Hillcrest Rd and Custer Rd (with a second lane closed at the intersection with Coit Rd due to road construction)
  • Southbound Custer Rd between Main St and Rolater Rd
  • Westbound Rolater Rd between Custer Rd and Coit Rd
  • Southbound Coit Rd between Rolater Rd and Lebanon Rd
  • Westbound Lebanon Rd between Coit Rd and Ohio Dr 

Several neighborhoods along the race course will have one or more entrances closed during the race (along the roads mentioned above). During this time, residents of those neighborhoods should use alternate routes into and out of their neighborhood. The race organizers have put together a list of the affected neighborhoods, the entrances that will be closed, and the alternate routes that should be used. See the attached document.
