Yucca Drive, between Stone Bridge Drive and Sagebrush Drive, is temporarily closed as part of the Yucca Drive Reconstruction project, according to a news release from the town of Flower Mound.

Sagebrush Drive has also been reduced to two lanes between Stone Bridge Drive and FM 2499, with one lane open in each direction. The work is expected to be completed by June 14, according to the town.

The entire project began in October 2018 to extend Churchill Drive 400 feet to the east to connect to Yucca Drive, near the Kohl’s on FM 1171. The new Churchill section will include a 4-foot-wide sidewalk on the south side and an 8-foot-wide sidewalk on the north side.

Crews will also be reconstructing Yucca Drive, starting just south of Kohl’s and extending south to the Sagebrush Drive intersection. The existing narrow asphalt section of Yucca Drive will be replaced with a standard width, 2-lane concrete curb-and-gutter roadway with a 4-foot wide sidewalk along the west side and an 8-foot wide sidewalk along the east side, according to a town news release. The project is expected to be complete in November 2019.
