The Texas Department of Transportation in March finished the second phase of a more than 8-year-long rehabilitation and reconstruction project on FM 1938 in Southlake.

A partnership between TxDOT, Tarrant County, the city of Southlake and other entities, the $37 million second phase reconstructed the roadway from one lane in each direction to a four-lane, divided roadway with raised curb medians.

The second phase, which stretched from Randol Mill Road to FM 1709, also included intersection improvements, drainage upgrades and a screening wall adjacent to the Myers Meadow subdivision.

Phase one of the project, completed in 2012, upgraded FM 1938 to a six-lane, divided roadway from SH 114 to south of Dove Road.
