The Tarrant County Commissioners Court unanimously approved an interlocal agreement with the city of Grapevine at its Nov. 16 meeting. The agreement outlines an arrangement in which Tarrant County will aid Grapevine in the rehabilitation and resurfacing of three roads: Oak Grove Loop, Snakey Lane and Hughes Road.

As outlined in the resolution, the county will—among other things—furnish the labor and equipment to assist Grapevine with the project and the city will pay for materials, as well as delivery or freight costs. The city will also be responsible for traffic control and some fuel-related costs as well as other responsibilities.


The work on Oak Grove Loop will extend from West Dove Loop Road to Dove Road; work on Snakey Lane will occur between Kimball Avenue and Silver Crest Lane; and work on Hughes Road will occur between SH 121 and Euless Grapevine Highway, according to the resolution.

A timeline for the road work has not yet been announced.
