Beginning Thursday, February 18, 2016, TxDOT contractors will close the driveway access at the Carpe Diem Preschool on FM 1938 – located on the northwest corner of the intersection of FM 1938 and Southlake Boulevard (FM 1709) – in order to re-construct the driveway and pave this area of FM 1938.

FM 1938 Update – Week of October 19, 2015

TxDOT will be closing some access driveways on FM 1938, south of Southlake Boulevard (FM 1709), as part of the FM 1938 Phase II construction project.

Upcoming driveway closures for the week of October 19, 2015

Upcoming driveway closures for the week of October 19, 2015

Beginning the week of October 19, 2015, the middle access driveway on the east side of FM 1938 (Davis Blvd) south of FM 1709 (Southlake Blvd) is planned to be temporarily closed for approximately four days in order to perform storm drainage installation.  During this time, the southern access driveway (near MOOYAH) will be open to provide access from FM 1938 (see picture for driveway closure/open locations).

Once the installation of the storm drain is complete, the two driveways will revert back to the previous configuration.  All other driveway configurations will remain as shown until further notice while construction activity continues in this area.  Please use alternate driveways to access your destination.

The FM 1938 project continues to roll along, making significant progress and we appreciate your continued patience going forward. The project, once finished, will improve mobility greatly at the intersection of FM 1709/FM 1938 and north along FM 1938 (Davis Boulevard).

For questions about the FM 1938 Phase II project, please contact Stephen Ranft, TxDOT mobility coordinator, at fm1938mobility@gmail.com or 817-462-0520.

Getting Around FM 1938 Construction – Alternate Routes to Florence Elementary

(main) Suggested alternate route to Florence Elementary; (Inset) Zoomed in view of FM 1938/Southlake intersection

School is set to start Monday, August 24, 2015, but with construction on northbound FM 1938 and at the intersection of FM 1938 and Southlake Boulevard (FM 1709), getting to one campus – Florence Elementary – may be a little tricky if you’re used to taking Southlake Boulevard (FM 1709) westward to Pearson Lane or FM 1938 north to Johnson Road.

The construction at the intersection of FM 1938 and Southlake Boulevard and the closing of Johnson Road off FM 1938 planned for the week of August 31, 2015 will make accessing the campus difficult if you’re coming from Southlake.  With that in mind, parents are advised to seek alternate routes to the Florence Elementary campus.

The City is suggesting motorists take westbound Florence Road to southbound N. Pearson Lane. From Pearson Lane, access to Florence Elementary can be made in the following ways:

  1. Johnson Road eastbound off Pearson Lane then south on Harell Drive
  2. Gray Lane eastbound off Pearson Lane then north on Harrell Drive
  3. Jordan Drive eastbound off Pearson Lane then north on Harrell Drive

Construction surrounding these locations will continue for at least the next year.

Keller residents may notice increased traffic in the area as these alternate routes are utilized. Please allow for enough time to reach your destination.

For questions about the FM 1938 project, TxDOT has appointed a mobility coordinator named Stephen Ranft. He can be reached at fm1938mobility@gmail.com or 817-462-0520.
