About the FM 1938 Project: 

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: November 2017

The intersection of Southlake Blvd (FM 1938) & Davis Blvd has been completed. Landscaping is currently finishing up in the completed medians and parkways. Crews are also focusing on the Myers Meadow subdivision screening wall. Once the design is complete and construction is ready to begin, there will be periodic lane closures. Finally, the contractor is scheduled to begin work in late November to replace a large underground drainage structure north of Beam Drive to provide flood protection to properties downstream of FM 1938. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2018. 
Additional project updates are provided to the City by TxDOT Mobility Coordinator Stephen Ranft on the FM 1938Mobility Facebook page. City updates can be found on the My Southlake News website with the keyword search FM 1938.
