Plano's current road construction projects can be found on the Road Construction Updates page.
The traffic safety record of a Single Point Urban Interchanges (SPUI) design is comparable to that of a traditional freeway interchange design.
An SPUI design can move more traffic than a traditional design and do so with less traffic delay and congestion. SPUI designs also require significantly less right-of-way for construction as compared to traditional interchange designs. This SPUI, upon completion, will be the first of its kind in Texas. Because of their ability to effectively move traffic, SPUI designs are increasingly popular. The SPUI has been deployed successfully around the United States in Virginia, Louisiana and Arizona, as well as in other countries.

The Transportation Engineering Division, if in agreement with the request, prepares an ordinance for City Council approval.
