Project Timeline


The FM 2499 construction includes rebuilding the mainlanes of FM 2499 from SH 121 to Denton Creek. These new lanes will be "depressed" (lowered) and will allow commuters to bypass the intersections of Stars and Stripes Way and Grapevine Mills Blvd. 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 by January 2017. Click here for our fact sheet.

Below is an update on this construction:

  • Grapevine Mills Blvd.: We have started work on the north side of Grapevine Mills Boulevard bridge. When the entire bridge is complete, Grapevine Mills Blvd. will have eight lanes and a Texas U-turn on the north side.
  • Southbound FM 2499 at Denton Creek: Work has resumed on the new southbound FM 2499 lanes over Denton Creek, which was flooded from early June to mid-July.
  • North and Southbound FM 2499 Mainlanes: Crews continue to perform dirt, drainage and wall work on the new, lowered FM 2499 mainlanes.

In 2014, funds became available for construction of new ramps from William D. Tate Avenue to SH 121 and SH 360. These new ramps will provide drivers better access to SH 121/360 and allow them to bypass the Stone Myers Pkwy. intersection. Click here for our fact sheet.

Below is an update on this construction:

  • Paving: Crews have started concrete paving at the north end of the SH 121/360 ramp construction.
  • Bridge Work: This summer, crews will set girders (bridge beams) and begin deck work on two new bridges near William D. Tate Avenue: a bridge over the exit ramp to Hall-Johnson Rd. and a bridge over Stone Myers Pkwy.
