Randol Mill (FM 1938) Open to Traffic

Randol Mill has re-opened to thru traffic, but future detours could be necessary.

Randol Mill has re-opened to thru traffic, but future detours could be necessary.

Randol Mill (FM 1938) from Florence Road to Johnson Road will be opened to thru traffic Thursday, July 31st.

The water and sewer utility relocation that required the closing of Randol Mill Avenue from Florence Road to Johnson Road is complete. The relocation, which began June 9th and was expected to last 60 days, finished a week early.

Although it’s open, drivers should be aware that since this project is part of the FM 1938 Phase II expansion, it will be necessary to close parts of Randol Mill (FM 1938) and implement detours as needed.

For further information about the FM 1938 Phase II project, please visit the project webpage here.

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

City Crews to Extend Southbound Randol Mill Right Turn Lane at FM1709 to Alleviate Congestion

The Public Works’ Streets and Drainage division will be extending the southbound right turn lane on Randol Mill Avenue at FM 1709 (Southlake Blvd.) over the next several weeks. Since the opening of Phase 1 of FM 1938, which widened Davis Blvd. through Westlake from SH114 to the Randol Mill Bend, southbound commuters have been experiencing significant traffic backups near the intersection at FM 1709. Feedback from the community brought this issue to the attention of the Public Works Director and staff.

While the intersection of FM 1938 and FM 1709 is scheduled to be widened as part of the FM 1938 Phase 2 project through Southlake, these improvements will take several years to construct. To increase the capacity of traffic flowing through the intersection now and reduce the current congestion in the afternoon peak traffic hours, the right turn lane on Randol Mill Avenue will be extended north for approximately 200 feet. This will create a right turn lane storage bay and will allow more vehicles into the intersection. For questions regarding this project, please call Public Works at 817-748-8098.
