Beginning in late 2013, NorthGate started work on rebuilding FM 2499. Work included rebuilding the mainlanes of FM 2499 from SH 121 to Denton Creek and featured new “depressed” (lowered) lanes and allows commuters to bypass the intersections of Stars and Stripes Way and Grapevine Mills Blvd. Also open are north and southbound FM 2499 frontage roads, and two intersections that were rebuilt as bridges. The bridges over Denton Creek were also rebuilt. The project was completed and opened ahead of schedule in July 2016. Click here for our fact sheet.
