H-E-B happenings

The orange barrels and lane switches and sometimes excruciatingly long lines have become a way of life along Airport Freeway and many of the roads leading to it. Sometime in 2018 it’ll be worth it, when the Midtown Express is finished.

A look at the latest in the Midtown Express project

The orange barrels and lane switches and sometimes excruciatingly long lines have become a way of life along Airport Freeway and many of the roads leading to it.

Sometime in 2018 it’ll be worth it, when the Midtown Express is finished.

But for now the road work is a pain.

Here’s what’s ongoing and coming up:

  • Various eastbound and westbound lanes and frontage roads on Texas 183 are closed from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. nightly.
  • The Main Street bridge over 183 remains closed as it is being demolished and a new bridge is being built.
  • The frontage road U-turns at Industrial Boulevard under 183 remain closed.
  • Beginning at 9 p.m. Friday, northbound and southbound Industrial Boulevard will shift to a new traffic pattern.

‘A Year With Frog and Toad KIDS’ starts Oct. 14

It’s the story of a friendship that endures throughout the seasons, and it’s meant for younger audiences and their parents, too. Artisan Children’s Theater will present A Year With Frog and Toad KIDS at its 150 seat Second Stage facility starting Oct. 14 and continuing through Nov. 12.

This whimsical show follows the cheerful, popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad. Waking from hibernation, Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding, learn life lessons and rejoice in the differences that make them unique and special.

The theater is at 444 E. Pipeline Road in Hurst. Performances are at 5 p.m. Fridays and 10 a.m. and noon Saturdays, with additional noon performances on Tuesdays beginning Oct. 25. Reserved seating is $7 for children 12 and under and $10 for adults. Call the box office at 817-284-1200 or visit ArtisanCT.com.
