On April 20 the city of Grapevine began the reconfiguration of Fairway Drive, also called Lake Grapevine Dam Road, at SH 26. The project will remove the southbound Fairway Drive right-turn lane that connects to SH 26. The city is installing a traffic signal to control traffic at the intersection. The project is a result of the high volume of accidents at the intersection. The project will take four to six weeks to complete.

SH 26 Phase 1 improvements
Ongoing Phase 1 work on the SH 26 project from Brumlow/Pool roads to John McCain Road in Colleyville is continuing to cause traffic delays.

Installation of the new water line from Church Street to Main Street has been completed. Most water services in this area have been changed over to the new line. The purpose of the project is to improve and reconstruct the road to keep up with future traffic demands.
