FM 1886 to Azle Avenue/Merrett Drive
A widening project to improve mobility, capacity and safety on State Highway 199 from Farm to Market Road 1886 to Azle Avenue/Merrett Drive is funded and in design. The project will construct bridges at Rankin Street, Surfside Drive, Love Circle, Hodgkins Road and Azle Avenue while reconstructing and widening SH 199 from four to six lanes west of the Lake Worth crossing. The frontage roads will also be reconstructed.
The project will also construct a new bridge over Lake Worth while keeping the existing bridge in service as a frontage road bridge. Mainlanes will also be added east of the bridge.
The project was awarded to Sema Construction, Inc. in June 2020 for $104 million. It is estimated for completion in 2024.
