Update:  July 20, 2016:  Dove Road between Randol Mill and Peytonville Avenue is officially closed. 

Dove Road between Randol Mill Avenue and Peytonville Avenue is expected to be closed to construction starting Monday, July 11, 2016.

Beginning the week of July 11, 2016, Dove Road from Randol Mill Avenue to Peytonville Avenue will be closed for approximately 30 days to allow for the installation of underground storm drain infrastructure at the Southlake Meadows residential development.

Resident access will not be restricted; however the closing of Dove Road will require motorists to use detours to navigate around the construction zone.  Detour signs will be posted to make finding alternate routes easier.   Message boards are currently in place advertising the upcoming closure.

The closure is expected to cause delays in the area.  Please plan trips accordingly.  Regular status updates will be provided during the closure via the City’s My Southlake News and social media sites, as well as on the project page found on cityofsouthlake.com.

Recent Storms Cause Road Closures in Southlake and Grapevine

The water approaching North White Chapel is ten feet deep in some areas.

The water approaching North White Chapel is ten feet deep in some areas.

The thunderstorms which hit the metroplex Thursday night into Friday morning have caused road closures and event cancellations all over the DFW area.

In Southlake, drivers should be aware the area near the 3400 block of North White Chapel is closed due to flooding.  The roads were closed early Friday morning and will remain closed until further notice.  Public Works teams say the water is ten feet deep in some areas which is why they are asking drivers and pedestrians to stay out of the area. Road barricades have been placed near the affected area, drivers are asked use TW King as an alternate route.

Tonight after rush hour, the City of Grapevine will close Dove Road between Hyland Greens and Silvercrest because of rising water.  They will also close Fairway Drive so the Lake Grapevine spillway can be opened.  The City of Grapevine says that both roads will be closed until the water recedes away from the roads and the spillway can be closed.

Southlake DPS would like to remind you that if you are on the roadways here in Southlake or in other parts of DFW and see road barricades or flooding conditions, Turn Around, Don’t Drown

Weekend Events

Southlake Community Services has canceled the Family Camp Out that was scheduled for Bob Jones Park this weekend.  For more information, please call the Community Services department at (817) 748-8019.

Summer Kickoff will move inside Town Hall tomorrow. The event will still be from 10 AM – 1 PM and include all planned activities except for the bounce houses and live band.  We hope to see you there, rain or shine.

 

Roundabout coming to Peytonville Avenue and Sam School Road

Proposed new roundabout at Sam School Road/North Peytonvill Avenue

Proposed new roundabout at Sam School Road/North Peytonville Avenue

Beginning this summer, significant roadway work will begin in the area of Sam School Road, North Peytonville Avenue and West Dove Road.

Centurion American, the developer of the proposed Southlake Meadows subdivision, will be realigning Sam School Road with North Peytonville Avenue in preparation for construction of a new roundabout at Sam School Road, Dove Road and North Peytonville Avenue.

Currently, there is significant traffic congestion in the vicinity of the intersection of North Peytonville Avenue and West Dove Road during the peak AM and peak PM hours (primarily related to school traffic).

This project addresses current the traffic backup at South Peytonville Avenue and Dove Road as well as Sam School Road and Dove Road. Long term, the project will address the traffic expected from future developments in this area of the City.

The timing of the construction – during the summer months when school is out – was chosen to provide minimal impact to the driving public. However, the City will be working closely with the developer to provide residents and motorists regular updates on road closures or other traffic impacts as the project gets underway.

Please make sure to visit the City’s website and social media sites for up to date information about this, and other projects happening in Southlake.

For questions about this project, please contact Alex Ayala, P.E. at 817-748-8274.

North Kimball Avenue and Kirkwood Boulevard to Dove Road Construction Begins Mid-September

The widening of the final section of Kimball Avenue from Kirkwood Boulevard to Dove Road is about to begin. Following extensive prep-work, such as acquiring all of the rights of way and relocating gas and electric utilities, the City Council awarded a construction contract to Pavecon, LTD at their August 20, 2013 regular meeting.  Construction is anticipated to begin mid-September and will last a year.

The widening of this final stretch along Kimball will be a significant construction project and will transform Kimball in a few important ways:

  • Widening of the road means that traffic flow will be improved.
  • Safety along Kimball will be enhanced with a better surface quality of the road, improved drainage for water runoff (which reduces the likelihood of flooding) and the installation of new street lights along the road.

As construction begins, travelers are likely to experience inconveniences along the Kimball corridor—slow traffic, congestion, or general traffic delays. The City is committed to maintaining two lanes of traffic open (one in each direction) and continuous access to all existing driveways, but delays may be likely. It’s with that in mind that the City respectfully asks that all travelers along Kimball remain patient throughout this process.

During construction, it is also imperative drivers:

  • Observe construction zone warning signs
  • Follow and obey designated traffic control devices (traffic lights, traffic signs, etc.).

An important goal of the project is to minimize inconvenience to motorists and to help protect those individuals working on the project. By observing construction zone warning signs and obeying traffic control devices, that goal can be achieved.

The Kimball project is important for the City of Southlake. The improvements along Kimball showcase a commitment to safety and a willingness to address the needs of a growing population. More importantly, the fact the project is a partnership between Southlake and Grapevine highlights a commitment to work with other cities to tackle regional problems and, ultimately, reduce costs for the City’s residents related to large-scale construction projects.
