A view of FM2499 in southern Denton County.

County and state officials will cut a ribbon to celebrate the completion of FM2499 at 10:30 a.m. Friday at Briercliff Park, 3200 State School Road in Denton. 

Construction of the highway's six-mile extension from FM2181 to Robinson Road began in April 2015. 

The last section to open was from Robinson Road to State School Road, following the delayed installation of a traffic signal. 

The $35 million project completes a direct link from southern Denton to DFW International Airport.
