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 in 2017. Click here for our fact sheet.
Below is an update on this construction:
- Stars & Stripes Way: We will open the new Stars and Stripes Way bridge in April 2015.
- Grapevine Mills Blvd.: Crews are currently building the south side of the new Grapevine Mills Blvd. bridge. We plan to open this new side in fall 2015.
- Southbound FM 2499 at Denton Creek: NorthGate Constructors changed the traffic pattern on southbound FM 2499, which will allow us to rebuild the new southbound FM 2499 bridge over Denton Creek. This new bridge will be complete in spring 2016.
- North and Southbound FM 2499 Mainlanes: Drainage, wall and dirt crews continue to work in the middle of FM 2499, where the new lowered FM 2499 mainlanes will be located.
