The $2.5 billion makeover of Loop 820 and Texas 121/183 is nearing its final few months, and soon the four some-odd years of construction headaches will be only a memory.
But meanwhile there's this:
The westbound lanes of Loop 820 from Texas 26 (Grapevine Highway) to Interstate 35W will be shifted Saturday to new pavement. The shifting of about 5.4 miles of freeway is expected to remain in place until June 29, and it's needed so that crews can put down pavement for the new main lanes. But for motorists the real inconvenience may be that for the duration of the lane shift many on- and off-ramps will be closed.
Access to westbound Loop 820 will only be possible from Bedford-Euless Road and Denton Highway (U.S. 377). Exits from westbound Loop 820 will be at Holiday Lane, Iron Horse Boulevard and Denton Highway.
