FM 2499


In March, the project’s new, lowered northbound main lanes opened. The northbound and southbound FM 2499 main lanes in Grapevine provide commuters the ability to travel through the area without stopping at the Stars and Stripes Way and Grapevine Mills Boulevard traffic signals. Crews have also opened the Stars and Stripes Way bridge. In May, crews are continuing to work on the west intersection of Grapevine Mills Boulevard. Officials anticipate that all lanes will be open and traffic will be in its final pattern in July, six months ahead of schedule. The project includes rebuilding the main lanes of FM 2499 from SH 121 to Denton Creek.

Bedford Road


Bedford Road in Colleyville is being resurfaced from Glade to Cheek Sparger roads. The project is being done in three phases with the first phase starting at Glade and ending at Centerpark Drive. From May 9-13, contractors finished paving Phase 1 and opened that portion of the road to traffic again. Manhole and valve adjustments as well as striping are still being completed. Later this summer contractors are expected to move on to Phase 2 of the project, which is from Centerpark to the bridge over Little Bear Creek. Work for the third phase, which is from the bridge to Cheek Sparger, has not been scheduled yet.
