Well, by living in Val Alstyne, you are aware of the traffic and construction on 75. We accidentally had to drive down 75 (southbound) on our way back from Bonham State Park...we missed our turn and it was either find a place to turn around or go on 75. We went on 75. It was close in some spots but we made it. Even made the ridiculously short transition turn from 75 to the GBT as someone was kind enough to let us merge in.
I really don't know of any other way you could go other than Greenville Ave to Hwy 5 (think that's the number) and then up to Van Alystyne but that's a lot of city traffic, a lot of school zones and traffic signals. I think this may be one of those "pick your own poison" type situations but as long as you get there before rush hour, I'm thinking you should be fine.
I did hold my breath and close my eyes (I wasn't driving ... hahahaha) in some of those construction areas where each lane is so skinny. Let us know how it goes
