SH 114 widening
The widening of the lanes on SH 114 between Kirkwood Boulevard in Southlake and Trophy Lake Drive in Trophy Club is 77 percent complete. Officials said the project is ahead of schedule and will most likely be complete before its projected completion date of June 2018. Currently, crews are processing designs for a soundwall through the district construction office. The soundwall will protect the adjacent neighborhood from escalated sound produced by more traffic on the expanded highway.

FM 1938/Davis Boulevard
extension phase 2
The FM 1938 construction project in Southlake has reached a partial-completion point. Roadway reconstruction from Brookforest Drive/Kingswood Drive to the south of FM 1709 has been completed, including the FM 1938/FM 1709 intersection. Reconstruction from Brookforest Drive and Kingswood Drive on the north end of the project resumed in late November 2017, taking place behind barricades, to avoid impact to motorists on FM 1938, with the rebuilding of drainage in that area. To accommodate the construction, Beam Drive will close. The cause of the delay was the poor soil conditions in the northern section of the project, and changes in the design were made to address this condition.

SH 121/ 360 interchange
Roads to northbound SH 121 and SH 360 to westbound SH 114 bridges have opened. The new bridges will take northbound SH 121 and northbound SH 360 traffic to westbound SH 114, allowing for a smoother transition between highways. In November, crews closed northbound SH 360 at Euless-Grapevine Road, northbound SH 121 at Stone Myers Parkway and the northbound SH 121 off-ramp to William D. Tate Avenue. The SH 121/360 Interchange project will add new direct connectors for SH 114, SH 121 and SH 360, which will minimize weaving, reduce congestion and improve safety in the area. The improvements were included in the original $1.6 billion DFW Connector project, but funds were not available at that time to deliver the entire scope. These improvements are now funded.
