Texas Department of Transportation officials announced Thursday that they expect work to resume on FM2181/Teasley Lane before Thanksgiving, with crews on six-day work weeks. 

The department canceled a contract with a previous construction company after it fell behind in widening the two-lane road to six lanes in southern Denton. The new company, Zachry Construction, expects to complete the project in early fall 2021, according to Emily McCann, department spokeswoman.
