State Street Connector is Now Open

The State Street connector, located between Federal Way and Division Street, is now open to traffic.

On Thursday, November 19, 2015, a ceremonial ribbon cutting was held to open the State Street roadway connector. This segment, constructed over a few months by the Public Works Streets/Drainage Division, will allow traffic to access SH 114 directly from State Street in Town Square. By providing this option, traffic in and out of Town Square should move a little more freely and lessen the amount of traffic on North Carroll Avenue. Ultimately, the completion of this roadway represents the fulfillment of a commitment to make traveling through Town Square easier.

The construction of the State Street roadway connector is also a great achievement that exemplifies the importance of partnership, in this case between the Town Square management company Cooper & Stebbins and the City of Southlake.  Working together, this project was able to move very quickly to completion and ultimately open in time for the Home for the Holidays event held this past Saturday, November 21, 2015.
