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: Due to heavy flooding at Lake Grapevine and the subsequent flooding of Denton Creek, work is suspended on the new southbound FM 2499 bridge over the creek.
- North and Southbound FM 2499 Mainlanes: Drainage and wall work continues on the new, lowered FM 2499 mainlanes. In August, crews will begin concrete paving the FM 2499 mainlanes from SH 121 to Grapevine Mills Blvd.
