(April 26, 2013) Eastbound Main Street and eastbound Cotton Gin Road -- between Legacy Drive and Dallas Parkway -- will be closed to traffic at 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 27. The closures are necessary to move traffic out of FC Dallas Stadium and Frisco Square following the EdgeFest concert.
In addition, the southbound exit ramp from the Dallas North Tollway (DNT) to Cotton Gin Road will be closed at the same time. Both roads and the exit ramp should be open again by 11:30 p.m. During this closure, traffic heading east on Main Street should use Legacy Drive to reach either Eldorado Parkway or Lebanon Road to continue eastward. During this time, Frisco Square can be reached by using northbound Dallas Parkway or by turning left from southbound Dallas Parkway at Main Street.
To minimize congestion after the concert, exit routes from FC Dallas Stadium and Frisco Square will be limited in order to reduce the points where traffic flows try to cross each other (see attached map). Depending on where they park, concert goers will be directed onto eastbound or westbound Main Street or north to Eldorado Parkway when they leave FC Dallas Stadium and then should follow the signs to reach the DNT, Preston Road, S.H. 121 or U.S. 380.
Motorists are urged to use caution in the area.
