SH 121 shoulder widening

GCS-2018-10-09-1

Funding for the project has been officially awarded to Austin Bridge & Road.

Funding for the project has been officially awarded to Austin Bridge & Road. Work will soon begin on a shoulder-widening project that the Texas Department of Transportation said will better accommodate periods of heavy traffic on SH 121 from SH 183 to Glade Road in Colleyville. Widened inside shoulders for both north and southbound SH 121 will be created to act as additional lanes during peak use periods. Overhead dynamic message signs will alert drivers as to when they can use the peak-use lanes. The lanes will continue to act as a shoulder during non-peak hours. The 3-mile project will include widening overpass bridges at Harwood Road, Cummings Drive, Cheek-Sparger Road and FM 157.

Timeline: fall 2018-2020
Cost: $28 million
