Lebanon Road Bridge in Frisco Opens to Traffic

NTTA - August 27, 2007Plano, TX – The Lebanon Road bridge over the Tollway opened to traffic on Saturday, Aug. 25.

“Motorists will no longer be forced to detour to Stonebrook Parkway or John Hickman Parkway in order to cross the Tollway at Lebanon Road,” said Rick Herrington, NTTA’s Deputy Executive Director. “Opening the Lebanon Road bridge will improve mobility and save time for the motorists in this area, especially as the school year gets started.”

The Lebanon Road bridge was initially closed in September of 2006 shortly after opening the new Stonebrook Parkway bridge. The two crossings were alternately closed as a way to speed up the construction of the main lanes and bridges and to reduce overall congestion in Frisco, which would have occurred if the two crossings were restricted simultaneously for staged bridge construction.

“The opening of Lebanon Road marks another important step towards the completion of the northward extension of the Tollway from State Highway 121 to U.S. 380,” said Herrington.
