Yucca Drive, between Stone Bridge Drive and Sagebrush Drive, will remain closed longer than originally planned, according to a news release from the town of Flower Mound.

As part of the Yucca Drive Reconstruction project, Sagebrush Drive has also been reduced to two lanes between Stone Bridge Drive and FM 2499, with one lane open in each direction. The closures began late last month and was expected to be re-opened by this Friday, but that date has been pushed back to June 21, according to the town news release on Wednesday.

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.
