Road construction crews have reported numerous trespassing incidents by vehicles and pedestrians on the new unopened section of FM 2499 north of Highland Shores Blvd.
Highland Village Police Department officials said that the road is prominently barricaded and marked, restricting public access during construction, and they plan to step up patrols in the area.
Trespassers will be subject to a citation and fine.
Officials anticipate that some portions of the new roadway may be opened within the next four months, after traffic signals are installed at the Highland Shores/Castlewood Blvd. intersection.
