Before 2013, Chapel Lane ended at Al Seier Road, and was contained to the north side of Interstate 459. In the mid-1990s, an extension of the road was considered, to give access to the Galleria. The extension was part of the Galleria Boulevard flyover project, which created Galleria Boulevard, which opened in 2002. In 2011, construction on the $7.5 million second phase of the project began, and concluded in 2013. The three-quarter mile extension includes a 1,200-foot-long bridge beginning to the north of the Patton Creek Shopping Center, over Patton Creek and under I-459.
