Beginning June 9, 2014, Randol Mill Avenue from Johnson Road to Florence Road will be closed to through traffic. This section of Randol Mill Avenue will be closed for about 60 days (weather permitting) as work crews construct water and sewer lines in preparation for TxDOT’s widening of Randol Mill Avenue (FM 1938 Phase II).

Closing the road is necessary due to the location of the existing water and sewer lines, which are currently under Randol Mill Avenue in the center of the two-lane roadway. An alternative to the closure was considered, but ultimately deemed too costly. Therefore, the road closure was determined to be the best solution.

Minimizing the impact of the Randol Mill Avenue closure to residents and motorists is a top priority. “We are working with the residents that are directly affected by this closure to mitigate the inconvenience as much as possible,” says Director of Public Works, Bob Price, P.E., N.S.P.E.

Measures to minimize the impact to residents and motorists include:

  • Placing detour signs near the closure points advising new routes (see map).
  • Evaluating the need to change the 2-way stop currently at Florence and Pearson to a temporary 4-way stop to ensure safety and mitigate the increase in traffic caused by the detour.

We ask for, and appreciate, your patience for the duration of the Randol Mill closure. If you’re traveling in the area, please observe the detours once construction begins.

If you have any questions regarding this project, please contact Alex Ayala, P.E., at 817-748-8274.
