The rehabilitation of Bandit Trail from Overland Trail to John McCain Road in Colleyville continues as Tarrant County places new asphalt on the road during early March. In February, crews began removing pavement and subgrade. The project includes regrading, reshaping and priming the roadbed as well as installing an asphalt surface.

The city of Southlake, along with Tarrant County, is making progress on widening Brumlow Avenue from just north of SH 26 to north of Westwood Antiques. Franchise utilities from Southlake Storage north to Alpine Materials will need to be moved as to not conflict with the work on the west side of Brumlow, and that will happen in March. Once that is done, work on the west side of Brumlow will continue. When complete the project will widen approximately 1,400 linear feet of Brumlow by expanding that segment of the existing road into four divided lanes. The expansion of this segment of Brumlow is necessary to accommodate proposed changes to traffic patterns in Southlake. In addition to widening the existing street, the project will include relocating city hydrants and water meters. There will also be trees planted on the west side of the road to improve the aesthetics.

FM 1938 Phase 2
The FM 1938 Phase 2 reconstruction project in Southlake and Keller, from Randol Mill Avenue to FM 1709, continues. Construction to widen the intersection of FM 1938 and FM 1709 is progressing as crews install curb and gutters on the outside sections of the intersection and reconstruct access driveways. North of the intersection, concrete paving continues on sections of FM 1938 and on some of the side streets that connect to FM 1938. The 1.6-mile project is widening the roadway to two lanes in each direction with raised medians and includes dual left-turn bays in all directions at the intersection of FM 1938 and FM 1709.
