As of Feb. 14, roadwork has officially begun in Frisco.

The City of Frisco will be re-striping roads, which will cause daily lane closures from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. for 2 weeks.

Eldorado Pkwy at Frisco St., Parkwood Blvd between Lebanon Rd. and John Hickman Pkwy., and Legacy Dr. from Panther Creek Pkwy to Main St. will all be affected by this. 

For some students, the closures may affect their daily routines. 

With Legacy being closed, it will cause more traffic outside of the Wakeland campus.

“[The closures] will make morning traffic more difficult and the lines will be longer to get into the parking lot,” senior Delaney Roncinske said.

Not only will closures affect the school campus, but it will affect those who have extracurriculars off campus. 

Junior Campbell Bednar has to go to the Frisco ISD Agriculture barn, located on the other side of the railroad track, in the morning to feed her sheep.

“I already have to get up earlier than students. I also enter Wakeland from the tollway entrance which requires me to take Frisco Street and Eldorado from the barn. We also know trying to get to school in the morning is a hassle and leaving takes forever,” Bednar said. “With the closing of Legacy, it is going to make all the traffic go through one way.”

With all the traffic going one way on Legacy, it will cause problems for students’ parking and carpool, as well as causing many students to be late for school and after school activities. 

“It causes way more traffic and if you don’t plan on that traffic, it sometimes makes you late for school,” senior Carolyn King said. 

Junior Maddie Attaway uses one of the roads to get to the gym she attends but will have to take a different route due to the re-striping. 

For students that have jobs outside of school, it will affect how they get to work. 

“[The road closures] would affect me as I work near school. Also leaving would be difficult as I’m zoned differently and would have to take Legacy in order to get home from school,” senior Kortnie Vincent said. 

Make sure to watch for lane closures over the next 2 weeks on Eldorado Pkwy at Frisco St., Parkwood Blvd between Lebanon Rd. and John Hickman Pkwy., and Legacy Dr. from Panther Creek Pkwy to Main St.
