Transportation updates for Grapevine, Colleyville and Southlake projects

Transportation Updates December

1. SH 26 Phase 2

Throughout December crews will be doing tree removal and installing drainage and temporary traffic signals. Various lane closures are possible from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., and SH 26 could be reduced to one lane, weather permitting. Motorists can also expect to see the installation of temporary driveways at various locations. The project is widening the road from four lanes to six lanes from John McCain Road to Brown Trail.

Timeline: November 2016-2019
Cost: $38.2 million
Funding sources: Texas Department of Transportation

2. FM 1938 Phase 2

Construction at the FM 1938 and FM 1709 intersection has been accelerated, and the intersection will be substantially complete by the end of 2016. North of the intersection, crews continue to reconstruct the new southbound lanes between Fawkes Lane and Florence Road. When complete the project will widen the roadway to two lanes in each direction with raised, curbed medians.

Timeline: April 2015-summer 2017
Cost: $20.6 million
Funding sources: TxDOT; U.S. Department of Transportation; Highway Administration; Tarrant County; cities of Southlake, Trophy Club, Keller, Westlake; North Central Texas Council of Governments

In December bridge crews will perform work on the new bridge that will take traffic from eastbound SH 114 to southbound SH 121. Also, crews will begin to build the wall between northbound and southbound SH 121. Drainage crews will begin to install the new drainage systems in the center median of northbound and southbound SH 121.

4. Cheek-Sparger road upgrades

In December crews will begin removing the existing pavement on the north side of the road and start prepping for the new stabilized subgrade. In November, crews completed subgrade work and placed the bottom layer of asphalt from Bedford Road to Brown Trail. Crews also began removing and replacing concrete driveways. When complete, the road will be rehabilitated, widened and resurfaced from Brown Trail to Bedford.
