The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is making improvements to FM 1938. The two-phase plan is the largest road construction project in the City of Southlake and is a partnership between TxDOT, Tarrant County, the North Central Texas Council of Governments and the cities of Southlake, Keller, Westlake and Trophy Club. Phase I which included the cities of Southlake, Keller, Westlake and Trophy Club is already complete. Phase II which is scheduled to be completed in 2018 includes the cities of Southlake and Keller.
Current Phase II Project Status: April 2018
The intersection of Southlake Blvd (FM 1938) & Davis Blvd has been completed. Crews are also focusing on the Myers Meadow subdivision screening wall with the relocation of utilities. Once construction is ready to begin, there will be periodic lane closures.
TxDOT’s contractor is approximately 30% complete with the underground drainage structure north of Beam Drive. The structure is being constructed to provide flood protection for the properties downstream of FM 1938.
These parts of the project are scheduled to be complete by next winter.
