Two side streets will connect the southbound SH 121 frontage road with Rio Grande Boulevard. The southbound SH 121 frontage road will be widened to accommodate the entrances to the side streets. The project will complete the bridge over Little Bear Creek, provide landscaping and irrigation to the medians, and construct entry features along the southbound SH 121 entry connections and Cheek-Sparger Road.

The project includes the placement of approximately 25,000 square yards of concrete paving, 1,900 linear feet of sanitary sewer line, 170 linear feet of water line and 700 linear feet of storm drainage pipe.
