From County Commissioner Chris Hill
As part of the ongoing TxDOT project to widen U.S. 75 from the Sam Rayburn Tollway to White Avenue in McKinney, the following closures are necessary:
Monday night, March 4, 2013
U.S. 75 SOUTHBOUND MAIN LANES
Closed from 9 pm until 6 am
The two main lanes of U.S. 75 southbound will be closed overnight for asphalt repair work. Beginning at 9 pm, all southbound main lane traffic will be directed to exit to the southbound frontage road just north of U.S. 380. Motorists will not have the opportunity to re-enter the southbound main lanes until just south of Eldorado Parkway. This will not affect northbound traffic. The date for this work is tentative depending upon the weather and other unforeseen circumstances.
As a reminder, this TxDOT construction project to widen U.S. 75 to four main lanes in each direction and three frontage road lanes in each direction will provide much needed extra capacity to the roadway. The project is anticipated to be complete in 2015.
Passport Day in Collin County
The Collin County District Clerk’s Office is hosting a special passport event at the McKinney office on Saturday, March 9, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., to provide passport information to U.S. citizens and to accept passport applications.
District Clerk Andrea S. Thompson said the Saturday passport fair is a great time to renew or get a new passport for any planned summer travel.
“Applying now can really help avoid any last-minute rush or worry over getting your passports for this summer,” she said. “And the Saturday hours mean parents don’t have to take the kids out of school to apply.”
U.S. citizens must present a valid passport book when entering or re-entering the United States by air. U.S. citizens entering the United States from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and Bermuda at land borders and sea ports of entry must present a passport book, passport card, or other travel documents approved by the U.S. government.
Information on the cost and how to apply for a U.S. passport is available at travel.state.gov. U.S. citizens may also obtain passport information by phone by calling the National Passport Information Center toll-free at 1-877-487-2778.
