(May 20, 2011) Eastbound Main Street and eastbound Cotton Gin Road -- between Legacy Drive and Dallas Parkway -- will be closed to traffic at 10 p.m. on Saturday, May 21, in order to move traffic out of Pizza Hut Park and Frisco Square following the Jimmy Buffett Concert. In addition, the southbound exit ramp from the Dallas North Tollway to Cotton Gin Road will be closed at the same time. Both roads and the exit ramp should be open again by around midnight.
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 Pizza Hut Park and Frisco Square will be limited in order to reduce the points where traffic flows try to cross each other. A map is posted on FriscoTexas.gov that shows these exit routes... view the 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 Pizza Hut Park and then should follow the signs to reach the Dallas North Tollway, Preston Road, SH 121 or US 380.
Motorists are urged to use caution in the area.
