FM 1938 Improvements project overview. Click on image for printable copy.

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will soon start making improvements to FM1938 at the Davis Boulevard/Southlake Boulevard intersection.  The improvements will include constructing dual left-turn lanes in all directions of the Davis Boulevard/Southlake Boulevard (FM 1709) intersection. The goal of this construction is to improve traffic flow through the intersection and to help ease traffic congestion along Southlake Boulevard (FM 1709) and FM 1938.  The image on the right provides a broad project overview.

Traffic flow and congestion at this intersection was one of the most talked about items during the 2013 Citizen’s Survey. At the time the survey was being conducted, design of the Davis Boulevard/Southlake Boulevard intersection was underway as part of the FM 1938 Roadway Project.  Since then, significant work has been done along FM 1938 to prepare for this construction, such as the City water & sewer utility relocation. This intersection work represents the next major step in the FM 1938 Phase II project.
