SH 5 will be closed at the DART railroad crossing in Fairview beginning on May 21. The closure is planned to be at least six months.
The limits of the actual closure will be from just north of Sloan Creek Drive (on the south side of the railroad) to about 1500 feet north of the railroad track. The rest of SH 5 on either side will be open to local traffic, but thru traffic will have to detour around.
The posted detour for northbound SH 5 traffic from Allen will be traveling Stacy Road east to Country Club and traveling north on Country Club to SH 5 in McKinney. For additional information, contact the Texas Department of Transportation Collin County Area Office at 972-547-2337.
