Beginning on Monday, October 23, 2017, Southlake Public Works Streets & Drainage will be closing off the sidewalk along the south side of W. Continental Blvd. near the intersection of Independence Parkway.
The sidewalk closure is required to safely relocate a large existing bee hive at the wall of Monticello Estates. The request has been made by the Monticello Estates HOA in order to preserve the bees.
The sidewalk will be closed approximately 50 feet in either direction of the site, and will remain closed for one week while the bees are gathered in a temporary box for transporting. Pedestrians, joggers and cyclists are asked to seek an alternate route during this time. Anyone potentially allergic to bees is asked to avoid the area.
We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation in order to safely remove and relocate the bee hive.
For questions, please contact Public Works Operations at (817) 748-8082.
