FM 1938 enhancements
Crews continue to work on the construction of the screening wall for the Myers Meadow subdivision located on the east side of FM 1938 near Lovegrass Lane in Southlake. This has resulted in the closure of the northbound outside lane from north of FM 1709 to near Camden Circle. The screen wall is expected to be complete in the spring of next year. Drainage improvements at the north end of the project are also progressing and should be complete in the coming weeks. When finished, FM 1938 will have median enhancements and intersection improvements.
