Road construction projects in Denton TX are going to bring more frustration to motorists in 2018. The good news is that long overdue road improvements should alleviate some of Denton’s growing congestion points where development has taxed the local transportation infrastructure. Below you can read the comprehensive transportation project reports presented at the January 16 meeting of the Denton City Council.

Along Interstate 35-E work on the Loop 288 interchange continues. A turnaround lane should be installed soon. An underpass linking to Brinker Road is also in the works, so look for that improvement as construction progresses this year. Along with the continued work on the new Buc-ee’s, I-35E will see improvements from 288 to Mayhill. Southbound frontage roads will be handling traffic once completed, and northbound lanes will be shut down for reconstruction during that phase. Denton transportation director, Mark Nelson, expects the improvements along I35E to be completed by January 2019.

Along Teaslely Lane (FM 2181), work has commenced to widen another point of Denton gridlock. The widening of Teasley will start at the Lillian Miller Pkwy intersection and stretch just east of Guyer High School. Look for a new light across from Guyer High School at Cedar Creek Ln.

Work on Highway 377 south toward Argyle will also begin soon. Denton area drivers should expect delays along Fort Worth as construction commences to improve another clogged artery for Denton traffic in recent years. After Union Pacific Railroad installs a new bridge over 377, the stretch between I-35E and Hobson Rd will begin this fall.
