TxDOT FM 2499: 

TxDOT is constructing a 6 lane divided road between FM 2181 and IH35. The project is contracted to Weber Construction.  Partial opening of the roadway was implemented in December 2017.  All main lanes are currently open between FM 2181 and Robinson Road. When fully open, the Robinson Road intersection will be controlled with a new traffic signal. A three-way stop is currently installed.  On Monday, March 12th, FM2499 will be opened to one lane of traffic between Robinson Road and State School Road until the new signal at Robinson Road is operational.  1-northbound and 3-southbound lanes will be open between IH35E and State School Road. TxDOT is currently estimating that the work on the signal will extend into April.

The Lake Sharon Drive project extends the existing roadway approximately 3,100 feet and includes paving, drainage, water line improvements and lighting construction along with signage and pavement markings. The project is expected to be completed in mid to late summer 2018.

Work completed through February included installation of underground storm drains and repairs to the Upper Trinity Regional Water District water transmission line. Installation of utilities and storm drains will continue through March of 2018. Installation of utilities across Lake Sharon has been initiated by dewatering the upper end of Lake Sharon. The next phase of construction will include construction of the intersection turn-out from FM 2499, construction of the multi-barrel box culvert across Lake Sharon and connections to the city pump station facility.
