Construction on the SH 199 project from FM 1886 to Azle Ave will begin October 5. Expect single lane closures east and westbound on SH 199 along this route Oct. 5-8 from 7 pm - 6 am for the installation of traffic barriers (Alternate routes are advised).
As part of this project, a new bridge over Lake Worth will be constructed. The existing bridge will be kept in service as a frontage road bridge. New SH 199 mainlanes will also be added east of the bridge. Bridges will also be constructed at Rankin Street, Surfside Drive, Love Circle, Hodgkins Road and Azle Avenue while reconstructing and widening SH 199 from four to six lanes west of the Lake Worth crossing. The frontage roads in this area will also be reconstructed. The project was awarded to Sema Construction, Inc. and is estimated for completion in 2024.
