GRAPEVINE, TX The city of Grapevine, Texas, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and NorthGate Constructors (NorthGate) hosted a groundbreaking on the SH 121/360 Interchange project. The $61 million project will add new direct connectors for SH 114, SH 121 and SH 360 that will minimize weaving, reduce congestion and improve safety in the area. This is the first of the $1.3 billion congestion relief projects to begin with funding provided by Gov. Greg Abbott and the Texas Legislature to reduce gridlock in some of the state's most congested areas.
Construction on another four projects in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex will be underway within the next year on SH 199, East Loop I-820 and I-35E for a total of $528 million in congestion relief funding.

The SH 121/360 Interchange 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. When congestion funding became available for these improvements in February 2016, TxDOT and NorthGate negotiated a plan to rebuild this portion of the original project.
