FM 1938 Phase 2 widening
The $20 million FM 1938 road construction project in Southlake and Keller, from Randol Mill Avenue to FM 1709, is on schedule for completion in the summer. Construction at the FM 1938 and FM 1709 intersection has reached substantial completion with all lanes opened as of Dec. 30. Some daily lane closures can still be expected to finish work in the medians and for placement of permanent traffic signals. North of the intersection, crews continue to reconstruct the new southbound lanes, which includes a new retaining wall located along the west side of the roadway.

SH 26 Phase 2 expansion
Throughout January, motorists can expect to see construction activity, such as the placement of more traffic-control devices and erosion-control measures, installation of temporary traffic signals, surveying crews and installation of drainage. Motorists can also expect to see the installation of temporary pavement and temporary driveways at various locations. The project will widen the road from John McCain Road to Brown Trail from four lanes to six lanes.

SH 121 expansion
Crews are continuing concrete pavement work on the main lanes of SH 121 and on the southbound frontage road. Dirt work for the new southbound frontage road/exit ramp to Grapevine Mills/Sandy Lake is also continuing. Concrete paving work on Patriot Drive has been completed. When complete the project will widen SH 121 from four lanes to 10 lanes between Grapevine Mills Boulevard in Grapevine and the Sam Rayburn Tollway/Business 121 split in Lewisville.

SH 121/360 interchange
Crews are performing work on the new bridge that will take traffic from northbound SH 360 to northbound SH 121. Crews are also performing foundation work and column construction on the new bridge that will take traffic from northbound SH 360 to westbound SH 114. Dirt work is also being done along northbound SH 121. From northbound SH 360, there will be two new ramps when complete: one to SH 121 and one to SH 114. From northbound SH 121, there will be a new ramp to westbound SH 114 and a reconfigured exit to William D. Tate Avenue.

SH 114 widening
In January, crews are doing startup work on the main lane construction project on SH 114 between Trophy Lake Drive in Trophy Club and Kirkwood Boulevard in Southlake. Work includes excavation in the right of way, milling asphalt, embankment work, work zone striping and setting concrete traffic barriers for the work zone. When complete the project will widen the section of the road from four lanes to six lanes. Currently SH 114 is three lanes wide in each direction until Kirkwood, where it narrows down to two lanes in each direction. The project is intended to help alleviate the bottleneck that occurs when the roadway goes down to four lanes.
