In preparation for the reconstruction of Fire Station No. 3, Denton will permanently close McCormick Street from Underwood Street to Avenue A on Monday. 

The planned expansion moves the station across from the current location to the west side of McCormick. The new building has four bays and room for a police office, an additional ladder truck and additional firefighters.

The street closure was approved by both the Traffic Safety Commission and City Council in 2018.

The closure does not affect the freeway exit or through traffic on Avenue A.
