FM 1938 Expansion Project Map

 

The $20.6 million FM 1938/Davis Boulevard project is the second project to complete the extension of the roadway from SH 114 to FM 1709/Southlake Boulevard. The completed extension will improve safety and enhance mobility in Northeast Tarrant County.

The 1.6-mile project includes a four-lane roadway with raised curb medians from Randol Mill Road to FM 1709/Southlake Boulevard. Additionally, improvements at the intersection of FM 1938 and FM 1709 will provide dual left-turn bays for each approach to enhance mobility through the intersection. The project will incorporate enhancements provided by the cities of Keller and Southlake, including landscaping and illumination along the roadway and sidewalks on both sides of the corridor. Construction will begin this spring and completion is estimated for 2017.

The first FM 1938/Davis Boulevard project included a six-lane divided roadway with raised curb medians from SH 114 to just south of Dove Road transitioning to a four-lane roadway with raised curb medians to Randol Mill Road. The 2.2 mile $15 million project was completed in fall 2012.

The projects are a partnership between TxDOT, Tarrant County, the North Central Texas Council of Governments and the cities of Southlake, Keller, Westlake and Trophy Club.
