(June 19, 2013) Traffic patterns will be modified at the intersection of Parkwood Boulevard and Stonebrook Parkway today as part of the Stonebrook Parkway Improvement Project. Traffic on Parkwood Boulevard will be reduced to one lane in each direction and will be shifted so that southbound traffic shares the east half of the road with northbound traffic as it passes through the intersection. In addition, Stonebrook Parkway will be completely closed west of the intersection and will no longer provide access to Frisco High School until school resumes in the fall.
Southbound motorists on Parkwood Boulevard should pay special attention to the temporary transitions from one side of the median to the other and travel through them slowly. All motorists at the intersection should pay attention to the new location of stop lines and the new traffic signal pattern. Overall, the current detours will remain in effect for the portion of Stonebrook Parkway that is closed between Dallas Parkway and Parkwood Boulevard. (Detour signs direct motorists to use Parkwood Boulevard, Lebanon Road, and Dallas Parkway as a detour around the road closure.)
Motorists are urged to use caution in the construction zone as people become accustomed to the new traffic patterns at the intersection.
This is part of the Stonebrook Parkway Improvement Project between Preston Road and the Dallas North Tollway that will widen the road to a six-lane, divided roadway and includes the extension of an underground water line. Phase 1 added dual left-turn lanes on westbound Rolater Road at Preston Road and is now complete.
Phase 2, which is still ongoing, encompasses the work between Parkwood Boulevard and Preston Road. Phase 2 is proceeding on schedule and is anticipated to be completed in September 2013. Phase 3 encompasses the work between Dallas Parkway and Parkwood Boulevard, which will be open to traffic again in the fall of 2013 and completed by early 2014. Phase 3-B will repave the intersection of Stonebrook Parkway and Parkwood Boulevard and is expected to be complete by the end of 2013. Phase 4 will add dual left-turn lanes and a right-turn lane on eastbound Stonebrook Parkway at Dallas Parkway. Phase 4 is expected to start in late 2013 and be completed in mid 2014.
