Construction on West FM 1382 has begun.
The project scope includes:
- Constructing a left turn lane and median opening for west bound FM 1382 traffic to enter into the Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center.
- A traffic signal light will be installed at the entrance of Cedar Hill State Park.
- A hike and bike trail will be installed on the south side of FM 1382 connecting the sidewalk at New Clark Road to the entrance road to Cedar Hill State Park.
- The highway median is being narrowed on the eastbound side of FM 1382 in the area of Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center and the Newman International Academy at Cedar Hill (NICH), formerly Northwood University. Through traffic will be shifted towards the median which will effectively create the space for a deceleration/acceleration lane for the Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center and Newman International Academy at Cedar Hill.
Construction for this project is managed by TxDOT and is estimated to be complete by Fall 2017.
