The paving of Sam School Road has begun and drivers should start seeing new progress on this developer driven road project.
In mid-2015, Centurion American began a roadway project to realign Sam School Road with North Peytonville Avenue. The work is part of their Southlake Meadows subdivision development project and is a preparatory step for the construction of a future roundabout at Sam School Road, Dove Road and North Peytonville Avenue.
Work ran into some challenges however, and, as a result of those challenges, delays. The City delays haven’t gone unnoticed with social media and email comments about the project’s timeline and questions about why work hasn’t been completed.
Now that paving is underway, it should be completed by the end of the week, weather permitting. Once the paving is complete, the road will remain closed to test the concrete and to ensure that it’s strong enough for traffic. Testing is expected to last at least a week (weather permitting). If the tests are successful, it’s anticipated that the road will re-open shortly afterward.
The paving of the road is an important milestone and puts the project one-step closer to completion – with a newly aligned road and roundabout. Look for future updates on the City’s social media pages and MySouthlakeNews.com.
