The SH 114 project proposes the reconstruction and widen of existing SH 114 from a four-lane roadway to a six-lane roadway within the limits extending from Trophy Lake Drive in Trophy Club to the Kirkwood Blvd, in Denton County, Texas.

Constructed main lane configuration would be six travel lanes (three in each direction) with a 10-foot outside shoulder and 12-foot inside shoulder. Total project length of SH 114 from Trophy Lake Drive in Trophy Club to the Kirkwood Blvd is 2.360 miles.

The proposed interchange and Parrish Lane will consist of six travel lanes three 12-foot lanes in each direction with a 12-foot outside auxiliary lane in each direction, 12-foot barrier inside shoulders and 10-foot outside shoulder. The existing frontage roads will be restriped to include one 12-foot travel lane, one 14-foot outside travel lane to accommodate bicycles in each direction. All changes proposed for this project are included within the existing 380 to 680-foot ROW. Total project length of SH 170 East of Roanoke Road to West of SH 114 Interchange is 1.068 miles.
