DALLAS (1080 KRLD) – If you plan on traveling on the Dallas North Tollway in the Plano or Frisco area this weekend, or if you live there, the NTTA is going to close a portion of the road for a bridge demolition.
Beginning Friday, June 10 at 11 p.m. crews will prepare for the full closure of DNT at midnight. Once the closure begins, the following areas will remain closed through 5 a.m. Monday, June 13.
All northbound lanes of the DNT from the Spring Creek Parkway exit to the Headquarters Drive entrance ramp.
All southbound lanes of the DNT from Gaylord Parkway to the Spring Creek Parkway entrance ramp.
The east- and westbound direct-connector ramps from the SRT to southbound DNT.
The northbound DNT direct-connector ramp to east- and westbound SRT.
The northbound entrance ramp from Spring Creek Parkway.
The northbound exit ramps at Legacy and Headquarters Drive.
The southbound entrance ramps from Gaylord Parkway, SH 121 and Legacy Drive.
The southbound exit ramps to Legacy Drive and Spring Creek Parkway.
Law enforcement will be stationed to assist with traffic control. For your safety and our crew’s safety, please do not try to drive passed barriers to access DNT. The barriers are in place because debris from the demolition will be falling onto DNT main lanes.
The good news is Tennyson Parkway will be open to traffic. The bridge structures are separated: as demolition occurs on the northern bridge, the southern bridge will remain open and operational.
