The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is making improvements to FM 1938. It is the largest road construction in the City of Southlake.

Phase I
 of the FM 1938/Davis Boulevard project went through Westlake and included a six-lane divided roadway with raised curb medians from SH 114 to just south of Dove Road transitioning to a four-lane roadway with raised curb medians to Randol Mill Road. The 2.2 mile $15 million project was completed Fall 2012.

Project Details for Phase II


Phase II is a $20.6 million project to complete the extension of the roadway from State Highway 114 to FM 1709/Southlake Boulevard. The completed extension will improve safety and enhance mobility in Southlake and in Northeast Tarrant County. TxDOT has recently announced that it will be finished in late 2017.  

The 1.6 mile project includes: 
  • a four-lane roadway with raised curb medians from Randol Mill Road to FM 1709/Southlake Boulevard.
  • improvements at the intersection of FM 1938 and Southlake Boulevard (FM 1709) will provide dual left turn lanes to enhance mobility through the intersection.
The projects are a partnership between TxDOT, Tarrant County, the North Central Texas Council of Governments and the cities of Southlake, Keller, Westlake and Trophy Club.
