DFW suburban traffic congestion is only going to get better thanks to the North Texas Tollway Authority’s recent improvements. The NTTA opened the first major direct-connector on the new Sam Rayburn Tollway/U.S. 75 interchange in mid-October 2010, vastly improving traffic flow through the busy Allen, Fairview and McKinney area.
It’s been a month of improved mobility for drivers in Collin County. First, on Oct. 10, the NTTA re-opened the Eldorado Parkway exit from northbound U.S. 75 (Central Expressway) in McKinney.
About a week later the NTTA opened the first major direct-connecting ramp on the new four-level interchange in Allen and McKinney. The new connector lets motorists on northeast-bound SRT directly access northbound U.S. 75. The new ramp takes drivers from the SRT up and over U.S. 75, and they access the northbound U.S. 75 main lanes north of Gateway Boulevard in McKinney. The new direct-connector also provides motorists with access to the northbound U.S. 75 frontage road and Eldorado Parkway.

In November 2010 the NTTA plans to open another direct-connector on the SRT/U.S. 75 interchange. This ramp will take motorists from southbound U.S. 75 directly to southwest-bound SRT.
