Work is scheduled to begin early next year on FM 156/Blue Mound Road, modernizing the once-rural roadway to meet urban needs.

The project will run from U.S. Highway 81/287 to McLeroy Boulevard/Watauga Road. The project will reconstruct and widen the existing two-lane roadway to a four-lane road with a raised median and left-turn bays at major cross-street intersections. Other improvements include sidewalks separated from the roadway and shared-use outside lanes to accommodate bicyclists.

The $48.6 million project was awarded to Webber LLC of Houston. Work will continue through 2022.

Currently, the Texas Department of Public Safety is working with utility companies on their relocation plans.
