Lewisville, Flower Mound and Highland Village transportation updates for September



Garden Ridge Trail update


This project will include a 4.2-mile trail and a 3.6-mile shared-use path along Garden Ridge Boulevard and South Valley Parkway. The trail will connect the Highland Village Denton County Transit Authority station with the Lewisville Municipal Annex. Additionally, the project will connect Highlands Park to Garden Ridge with a 10-foot-wide trail.
Timeline: estimated completion December 2019
Cost: estimated $2.13 million
Funding sources: grant from the Texas Department of Transportation and North Central Texas Council of Governments, city of Lewisville





Garden Ridge Boulevard at FM 3040 thru lane


The Garden Ridge Boulevard project includes the construction of a southbound left-turn lane on Garden Ridge at FM 3040. It also includes the installation of a turn lane, which will create a lane shift. The completed intersection will have a left-turn lane, two thru lanes and a right-turn lane. Crosswalk and pedestrian ramps along the north side of FM 3040 will be increased to 8 feet to comply with the town of Flower Mound’s Parks and Recreation Trails Master Plan. The project is currently halfway through the design stage.
Timeline: to be determined
Cost: $610,000
Funding source: town of Flower Mound





Waketon Road project


The Waketon Road project, a joint project between the town of Flower Mound and the city of Double Oak, has been delayed. The project consists of upgrading the existing two-lane asphalt roadway to a two-lane, low-to-moderate-capacity road. Included in the project is the installation of the two-lane concrete street as well as an enclosed drainage system and roundabout at the intersection of Waketon and Chinn Chapel roads. Construction was originally slated to begin next fall. However, according to the town’s website, construction will begin at an unknown date as Double Oak’s purchase of a necessary right of way is behind schedule.
Timeline: to be determined
Cost: $5.96 million
Funding sources: town of Flower Mound, city of Double Oak





Highland Village bond projects

The reconstruction of seven streets is included in the project. Those streets are Catesby Place, Ranier Court, Rosedale Street, Shasta Court, Sheldon Court, Snowdon Court and Sugarloaf Court. The street improvements, funded by the bond money, include the reconstruction of 23 residential streets the city has determined are failing or are at the end of their life cycle. Reconstruction will take place in four phases.
