For nearly 10 years, area residents have been working to get Texas 26 expanded from four lanes to six. Money was set aside quite some time ago, but the parties involved could not get the rest of the funds together for the expansion project.
In May, the City Council gave money to fund the project and it is expected to begin this spring. The project includes the widening of the roadway from the Brumlow Avenue/Grapevine’s Pool Road to just south of the John McCain intersection in Colleyville. The bridge over Big Bear Creek will also be replaced as a part of the project.
