Total freeway closure planned this weekend on US-75 in Collin Co.

If your weekend plans are taking you south of Texoma, a total freeway closure is planned for one of the area's busiest highways.

Officials with the City of Melissa in Collin County say the southbound lanes of US Highway 75 will be closed Saturday at noon until Sunday.

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.

Drivers are asked to be attentive to signage & slow down through work zones.
