 New Eldorado Parkway Interchange is Open
The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has opened the new Eldorado Parkway Interchange, however some work is still needed for the interchange to be fully complete. Drivers will notice the u-turns currently have stop signs but they will soon have dedicated signals. Additional pavement markings, signs, and concrete sidewalks are also needed. In the coming days and weeks, additional lane closures will be required to complete the work. Drivers are encouraged to pay close attention to pavement markings, signs, and signals as they travel through the intersection.

Residents are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the unique operation of this intersection. It is what’s called a Single Point Urban Interchange (SPUI). The name refers to the fact that all traffic turning left to/from U.S. 75 will be controlled from a single set of traffic signals located directly atop the bridge. This allows left-turning vehicles to turn simultaneously without crossing. See the video at the right.
There will be three different traffic cycles:
  • The first is for Eldorado Parkway through traffic that is not turning.
  • The second is for traffic turning left from U.S. 75 onto Eldorado Parkway.
  • The third is for traffic turning left from Eldorado Parkway onto U.S. 75.
