More roadwork for FM 1709 is headed your way! TxDOT contractors recently wrapped up Phase 1 of resurfacing the area from US-377 to west of Davis Boulevard this summer. Now they are ready to move forward with Phase 2 of the project and will be onsite starting Sunday, October 20 at 7 p.m. to mill and resurface all travel lanes from both directions of Southlake Boulevard from west of Davis Boulevard/1938 to SH 114.
No daytime lane closures are expected for this work to minimize the impact to the commuting public during peak traffic hours.
This project should be completed in 8-10 weeks, weather permitting.
You can get more project details from the TxDOT project tracker page here.
As always, visit the Southlake Mobility Facebook page for project updates as well.
Beginning the week of August 18, 2014, illuminated street name signs (ILSN’s) will be installed at all major intersections along Southlake Boulevard (FM 1709).
Motorists should expect rolling lane closures on Southlake Boulevard for the weeks of August 18th and 25th while these signs are being installed. The sign installation will take about a week (weather permitting), with the battery back-up installation happening the following week (the week of August 25th). The contractor, Durable Specialties, will have two to three crews performing the installation in an effort to expedite the project and limit the duration of lane closures.
We appreciate your patience during the installation of the illuminated street name signs and ask that motorists exercise caution when traveling along Southlake Boulevard (FM 1709) during the weeks of August 18th and August 25th.
For questions regarding the illuminated street name signs, please contact Steven Anderson, P.E. in the Public Works Department at 817-748-8098. For additional information about the illuminated street name signs, please visit the project web page here.
