Once completed, the new Bass Pro Drive bridge will add capacity to this intersection – in addition to a Texas U-turn on the south side of the bridge. Drivers should plan accordingly during both weekends and add extra time to their commute. All construction work is dependent on weather conditions.

The $371 million I-635/SH 121 Interchange project will increase capacity and connectivity between I-635, SH 121, SH 26 and FM 2499. The improvements were included in the original $1.6 billion DFW Connector project, but funds were not available at that time to deliver the entire scope. These improvements are now funded as part of the Texas Department of Transportation’s Texas Clear Lanes initiative, which aims at improving congested corridors across the state.
