Regional project

Dallas North Tollway widening

Three ramps to and from the Dallas North Tollway in Frisco closed in October as construction continues on a three-year project to build a fourth lane. The first closed ramp is the northbound entrance south of Panther Creek Parkway. Traffic will need to enter the tollway earlier, using the entrance ramp north of Main Street. The second ramp is the northbound exit ramp north of Panther Creek Parkway, and traffic will need to use the Panther Creek Parkway exit instead. The final ramp is the southbound entrance ramp north of Panther Creek Parkway. Southbound tollway traffic will need to use the next entrance located south of Eldorado Parkway. The ramps will reopen next winter.
