Crooked Lane Repaving Project Boosts Construction Standards

Workers began milling Crooked Lane this week as part of the City’s interlocal agreement and partnership with Tarrant County to repave the roadway.

During repaving, construction will utilize a process called soil-cement stabilization. Soil-cement uses a tightly mixed combination of soil, cement and water to produce a durable and high-quality roadway.

The process is a more efficient way than traditional construction to rebuild roads.

“We take great care and attention to ensure citizens of our commitment to excellence when it comes to building and maintaining the City’s quality infrastructure,” Director of Public Works Rob Cohen said. “This project is one example of how the City has been able to secure a network of partners to save costs on capital improvement developments while maintaining our high-standards for roads.”

The project outlines the resurfacing of Crooked Lane from Kimball Avenue to Nolen Drive. The responsibilities of the project will be shared between Tarrant County and the City of Southlake, with the county providing labor resources, heavy equipment and half of the fuel expenses while the City mills the roadway, makes any necessary subgrade repairs, manages traffic controls and stripes the roadway.

The budget for the project is $330,000, to be funded through the General Fund of the FY 2020 Capital Improvement Program. The project is scheduled to be complete in February 2020, weather permitting.
