Traffic Pattern Change on Coit Road Scheduled for June 27

Motorists traveling on Coit Road through North Dallas and Richardson will encounter a new traffic pattern on Wednesday, June 27. This change aims to enhance the driving experience along this route.

Crews from Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) and Archer Western Herzog (AWH) will shift traffic on Coit Road between Frankford Road and McCallum Boulevard starting at 9 a.m. on June 27. Drivers will be redirected from the existing northbound lanes to the newly constructed Coit Bridge and concrete roadway.

This adjustment is necessary to allow AWH crews to build a second bridge and roadway for Coit Road. Additionally, a temporary connection for Sugar Cane Way access will be constructed. Residents and visitors to University Place should use the Alocasia Drive entrance until the temporary entrance is established.

Northbound motorists on Coit Road will notice the new traffic pattern upon crossing McCallum Boulevard, where two lanes in each direction will be available on the new roadway and bridge. Signs alerting drivers to the traffic pattern change will be placed well in advance of the construction area.

“We understand that this will be a new traffic pattern for commuters, yet we are committed to efficiently ensuring our crews remain out of harm’s way and the drivers traveling this path get where they need to go safely,” said Trey Walker, vice president of capital design and construction. “The Silver Line project is on schedule, and we look forward to completing the northbound bridge in early 2025, improving safety for everyone using Coit Road and the Silver Line.”

Pedestrian access will be limited to the west side of the underpass once the traffic pattern changes. A dedicated walkway with access to DART bus stops, apartments, and retail centers will be constructed. There will be no pedestrian access on the east side of the Coit Road construction.

The new traffic pattern will remain in place until early 2025 as crews complete the roadway, relocate sanitary sewer lines, and reconstruct Sugar Cane Way.

The DART Silver Line is a 26-mile commuter rail traversing seven North Texas cities and three counties, aiming to improve mobility and accessibility. The service is expected to begin in late 2025 to early 2026.
