Work continues to widen the SH 121/I-635 interchange near Bass Pro Drive bridge in Grapevine.

Work continues on the four projects listed below. Here are recent updates and what drivers need to keep in mind as they travel.

1. SH 121/I-635 interchange widening

The new northbound SH 360 off-ramp to northbound SH 121 has officially opened. This was the first new bridge to open as part of the project. Weekend closures were carried out for crews to demolish the old bridge along the SH 121/I-635 interchange corridor. The northbound SH 26 off-ramp to SH 121 has been removed, and the new northbound SH 26 off-ramp bridge to SH 121 has opened in its place. Crews are working to take down the eastbound Bass Pro Drive bridge and will take down the I-635 on-ramp at Bass Pro in August. Work is expected to reach the halfway point by the end of the year.

Timeline: August 2018-2022
Cost: $370 million
Funding sources: Texas Department of Transportation

2. SH 26 widening, Phase 3

Construction activity on the east side of SH 26 continues as crews place concrete at driveways, installing sidewalks and lighting foundations from John McCain Road to Pleasant Run Road. Construction of the remaining segments of the side streets that meet at SH 26 on the east side is ongoing. On the south side of the project, crews continue to place concrete pavement and install driveways and sidewalks. Crews are also reconstructing Centerpark Drive east of SH 26.

Timeline: November 2016-late 2019
Cost: $38.2 million
Funding sources: TxDOT

3. North White Chapel Boulevard widening, Phase 2

Crews have shifted traffic to close the west side of the intersection at Highland Street and North White Chapel Boulevard. The closure will allow crews to work on the west side of the roundabout. Due to the closure, the traffic signal at Highland and North White Chapel has been removed, allowing northbound and southbound traffic to flow freely through the intersection. Eastbound and westbound traffic have been eliminated until the roundabout opens. The work on the roundabout is expected to be completed before the start of the school year.

Timeline: spring 2019-fall 2020
Cost: $10.38 million
Funding sources: city of Southlake

4. FM 1938/Davis Boulevard widening

Construction activity on the north side of the project continues as crews build the new southbound lanes from near Brook Forest Drive north to Randol Mill Avenue. Crews are also reconstructing Fawkes Lane at FM 1938. In the coming weeks, crews will focus on installing the remaining irrigation, landscaping and lighting. On the south end of the project, crews are making progress on the screen wall on the east side of FM 1938. The 1.6-mile project is widening the existing two-lane roadway to a four-lane roadway with curbed medians.

Timeline: spring 2015-summer 2019
Cost: $20 million
