Regional Mobility Projects

Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is currently improving and reconstructing major roadways to enhance the City's transportation system and accommodate for increasing capacity. Listed below are the current and upcoming regional mobility projects for 2019.

For additional updates, TXDOT provides regular status reports on projects in the Denton area in their monthly On-System Project Status Report.

I-35E Project
The project would rebuild the entire 28-mile corridor and provide managed lanes with dynamic pricing to keep traffic moving at 50 mph. Approximately $1.1 billion in funding has been identified for the project with most coming from SH 121 regional toll revenue funds dedicated to Denton County. The project includes interchange improvements at the intersections of I-35E with Loop 288, Brinker Road, and Mayhill Road.
TxDOT Anticipated Construction Completion:
Loop 288 & Brinker Interchange - December 2019 
Mayhill Interchange - December 2022


US 377 Project
The project will widen US 377 from a two-lane rural roadway to a six-lane urban section and replace existing UPRR bridge. The project will also make intersection improvements at the FM 1830/Country Club/US377 intersection.
TxDOT Anticipated Construction Completion: November 2020 

Teasley Lane/FM 2381
The purpose of the project is to provide transportation improvements to enhance the regional transportation system by increasing capacity, reducing traffic congestion, and improving mobility on FM 2181. The existing facility (FM 2181) is a four-lane (two in each direction) divided urban roadway from the beginning of the project at Lillian Miller Parkway to approximately 0.25 miles south, and at this location the existing facility transitions into a two-lane rural roadway until the project terminus at IH 35E. The proposed project would modify the existing FM 2181 to a six-lane (three in each direction) divided urban curb and gutter roadway with left-turn lanes at various intersections
TxDOT Anticipated Construction Completion: To Be Determined
