Project Timeline


The FM 2499 construction includes rebuilding the mainlanes of FM 2499 from SH 121 to Denton Creek. These new lanes will be built below grade level, and will allow commuters to bypass the intersections of Stars and Stripes Way and Grapevine Mills Boulevard. There will be a north and southbound FM 2499 frontage road, and the two intersections will be rebuilt as bridges. The bridges over Denton Creek will also be rebuilt. Construction began in late 2013 and will be completed in 2017. Click here for our fact sheet.

What can you expect to see IN the UPCOMING months?
  • Project design is substantially complete.
  • We continue to relocate utilities in the following locations: northbound FM 2499 at Grapevine Mills Blvd.; FM 2499 mainlanes from Grapevine Mills Blvd. to Denton Creek; and southbound FM 2499 frontage road north of Grapevine Mills Blvd.
  • Grading (dirt) crews are continuing excavation work, installing drainage pipe and continuing work on Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) walls for the new FM 2499 mainlanes.
  • Bridge crews continue work at Stars and Stripes Way and Denton Creek bridges.
