Heads up: Construction and weekend highway closure in Collin County

Those who plan to travel through Collin County this weekend should consider an alternate route if US-75 is on your route!

All southbound main lanes of US-75 are set to be closed around 12:00pm Saturday afternoon and remain closed until around 7:00pm Sunday night.

“There will be plenty of officers to assist with traffic control issues,” says Anna Police Department. All traffic will be required to exit SB US 75 at exit 48 onto SB Frontage Rd and will be allowed to re-enter US-75 at on-ramp south of Melissa Rd.

TxDOT’s contractor Austin Bridge and Road will be performing a mainline traffic switch on southbound US-75 into new detour alignment and then onto newly constructed roadway, according to the city of Melissa.

Be attentive to signage & slow down through work zone. Local traffic seek alternate route.
