DFW Connector affects I-635 ramps Work on Oct. 1 resulted in full ramp closures from I-635 to Bass Pro Drive in Grapevine for the evening. Further full lane closures are expected throughout October along Bass Pro Drive to make way for more paving. These closures along I-635 have made way for paving work as part of the larger DFW Connector project by NorthGate Constructors. Timeline: August 2018-2022 (I-635 portion) Cost: $370 million Funding source: Texas Department of Transportation

Sculpture installed at roundabout The roundabout at Zena Rucker Road and Tower Boulevard has received a new sculpture. The city of Southlake an- nounced the addition of Michael Warrick’s Mockingbird Tree on Sept. 21. The project has also included public water, sanitary and storm sewer systems work. Drivers will be able to travel on Zena Rucker from Park Village to The Shops of Southlake once the project is complete. Timeline: December 2019-present Cost: $2.1 million Funding source: city of Southlake

North White Chapel retaining wall work continues The city of Southlake provided an update Sept. 16 on the construction of the new retaining wall on North White Chapel Boulevard. As work on the retaining wall is expected to last through the fall, crews are also working on storm drain improve- ments throughout the project. Temporary asphalt is being laid to allow for traffic to continue moving. Timeline: summer 2020-TBD
