Flower Mound residents will soon see improvements to an intersection and a lane capacity in projects that involve FM 2499.

The details

For the intersection, Flower Mound officials stated on the town’s website that improvements to intersection at FM 2499 and FM 3040 include reconfiguration to provide a dual left turn, three through lanes and a dedicated right-turn lane for each direction. The eastbound portion of FM 3040 will continue to have a dual right-turn lane as it currently exists. Texas Department of Transportation officials have approved the 100% completed design submission.

Flower Mound officials said right-of-way acquisition was received in January. The cost is $3 million and will be funded through impact fees and other money, Flower Mound officials said.

Utility relocations will begin this spring, and construction will start in the fall, said Melissa Demmitt, communications director for the town of Flower Mound.

Zooming in

In the other project, Lakeside Parkway Capacity improvements will include widening Lakeside Parkway between FM 2499 and SH 121 from the existing four lanes to the master-planned six-lane cross-section. Among the other improvements include signal modifications at Long Prairie Road, Gerault Road and Garden Ridge Boulevard, as well as removal and replacement of filled concrete panels associated with the Lakeside Panel Placement project.

The design for the project is 30% complete, and the cost will be $13.1 million, with funding coming from roadway impact fees, Denton County bond funds and project savings.

Right-of-way acquisition will begin in February. Utility relocations will begin in the summer, and construction is set to begin in winter 2024, Demmitt said.
