SH 199 construction begins this week

TxDOT - June 13, 2007

TARRANT COUNTY – Work begins this week on the reconstruction of State Highway 199 from Farm-to-Market Road 1886 to Denver Trail. The $31.7 million project will include the reconstruction of the frontage roads, new signals, traffic cameras and dynamic message signs.

The 4.25-mile project is estimated for completion by winter 2009. The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) awarded the project to Texas Sterling Construction of Houston. The improvements are expected to improve safety and better manage traffic flow. The project will also establish a clear footprint for the future highway main lanes when traffic warrants and funds become available.

“SH 199 is an important arterial roadway for northwest Tarrant County,” said North Tarrant County Area Engineer Ralph Browne. “By rebuilding the frontage roads and preparing for continued growth, TxDOT is addressing the current needs while planning ahead for future increases in traffic.”
