Morriss Road improvements

To allow for panel replacement work, portions of Morriss Road were reduced to one lane May 15. The lane reductions begin on the northbound lanes north of Tournament Drive and follow the panel replacements as they progress. Work on the 20-inch water line replacement from Forest Vista Drive to Garden Road was scheduled to begin May 28. The project includes concrete panel replacements from FM 3040 to Firewheel, Americans with Disabilities Act improvements from FM 3040 to Firewheel as well as 20- and 24-inch water line replacements from Forest Vista to Garden. Additional work includes FM 3040 and Morriss intersection improvements and a southbound left-turn lane extension at Morriss and Forest Vista.

Fairway Drive update

Fairway Drive across Grapevine Lake dam has been closed since August due to a slide at the dam. The Army Corps of Engineers is in the process of repairing the slide and had intended to close the road during the construction phase only. However, in January the Corps said the road will be closed indefinitely. The Corps said in order to reopen the road to the public, the embankment restoration project of the dam, repair of asphalt and the guardrail in the vicinity of the slide repair, and maintenance of the road—including crack sealing—must be complete, Flower Mound officials said in May. No date or schedule for reopening of the road was provided.
