Contractors will be on site to remove and replace faded striping on Brumlow Avenue between E. Continental Boulevard and SH 26 and along S. Kimball Avenue between FM 1709 and SH 26 starting Tuesday, June 9, weather permitting. This roadwork is a part of the Traffic Management Division’s annual citywide pavement marking program.
Throughout the calendar year, the Southlake Mobility Team collects marking requests from residents, businesses, staff and school zone evaluations. The City then hires a contractor to address all of the requests during the late spring and early summers when traffic volumes are lower. Grouping the requests allows them to be addressed more efficiently.
“The City is committed to keeping markings visible and in good condition on roads in Southlake so that drivers and pedestrians are safe,” said Transportation Manager Stephanie Taylor. “We want our residents and visitors to be able to navigate Southlake efficiently and safely.”

Grab your walking shoes because the Continental Sidewalk will be open soon.
The four-mile sidewalk trail will loop all the way around connecting FM 1709, S. Kimball Avenue and S. Carroll Avenue giving pedestrians easy access to parks, businesses, neighborhoods and multiple schools.
Over the last few weeks, contractors have cleaned up and added the finishing touches to landscaping and culvert crossings. Only a few minor details remain. The handrail installation is almost complete and crossbars are expected to be installed next week.
This sidewalk segment is part of the City’s 2030 Mobility Master Plan, a plan that identifies opportunities to reduce traffic congestion while simultaneously promoting the needs of residents, businesses, visitors and pedestrians.
The Continental Sidewalk Project portion of the plan is estimated to cost $317,000 and funding was made within the General Fund’s City Pathways Program.
