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.

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.

Cost: $5.96 million
