Work continues on the four projects listed below. Here are recent updates and what drivers need to keep in mind as they travel.

1. SH 121/I-635 interchange widening

The new northbound SH 360 off-ramp to northbound SH 121 has officially opened. This was the first new bridge to open as part of the project. Weekend closures were carried out for crews to demolish the old bridge along the SH 121/I-635 interchange corridor. The northbound SH 26 off-ramp to SH 121 has been removed, and the new northbound SH 26 off-ramp bridge to SH 121 has opened in its place. Crews are working to take down the eastbound Bass Pro Drive bridge and will take down the I-635 on-ramp at Bass Pro in August. Work is expected to reach the halfway point by the end of the year.

2. SH 26 widening, Phase 3

Construction activity on the east side of SH 26 continues as crews place concrete at driveways, installing sidewalks and lighting foundations from John McCain Road to Pleasant Run Road. Construction of the remaining segments of the side streets that meet at SH 26 on the east side is ongoing. On the south side of the project, crews continue to place concrete pavement and install driveways and sidewalks. Crews are also reconstructing Centerpark Drive east of SH 26.

3. North White Chapel Boulevard widening, Phase 2

Crews have shifted traffic to close the west side of the intersection at Highland Street and North White Chapel Boulevard. The closure will allow crews to work on the west side of the roundabout. Due to the closure, the traffic signal at Highland and North White Chapel has been removed, allowing northbound and southbound traffic to flow freely through the intersection. Eastbound and westbound traffic have been eliminated until the roundabout opens. The work on the roundabout is expected to be completed before the start of the school year.
