Community Update: A DRY Fairway Drive Means Hope for Commuters!

Good news for all of you commuters out there (and for Kari since she commutes to Flower Mound from Grapevine…) – the Town of Flower Mound reported today that Fairway Drive is DRY!

This means that the Corps can now inspect the road for potential safety and damage issues. They’ve temporarily installed water barricades and the spillway was recently power-washed and swept to clear remaining debris. They’ll work to repair the surface as they’re able to ensure a great driving experience for commuters once it opens again.

As of now, they’ve given no timeline as to when we can expect the road to open again as they’re waiting for Grapevine Lake to hit a much lower water level…. it may be currently below the spillway, but it’s not by much!

BUT… that’s progress from where we were a week ago! So, we’ll continue to keep you updated so you can plan your commutes accordingly!
