Partial Intersection Closure Coming for N. White Chapel and Highland April 22

There’s been a lot of activity in the area of N. White Chapel and Highland, and it’s about to get even more active. In order for the new roundabout to really start taking shape, crews will be closing the east leg of the Highland Street and N. White Chapel intersection.

Weather permitting; the closure will start after the morning rush on Monday, April 22 and will include approximately 500 feet of E. Highland leading up to N. White Chapel. Much like the closure there in February, vehicles will not be able to turn east onto Highland from N. White Chapel or cross the intersection as they drive west. Vehicles coming from the west (from Peytonville or Shady Oaks) will be diverted north or south on N. White Chapel. Vehicles will still be able to turn west onto Highland from N. White Chapel or continue north and south on N. White Chapel.

This closure is expected to last about a month and a half. Once completed, this leg will then be reopened to northbound traffic only. One significant difference with this closure is that access to New Day Church will be impacted. A new entrance for the church is being constructed on N. White Chapel.

“We’d like to encourage drivers to seek alternate routes and try and avoid the intersection while the work is being completed,” notes City Engineer and Deputy Director of Public Works Kyle Hogue. “We are expecting significant delays during the morning and afternoon rush periods, so finding an alternate route might add distance to your trip, but could end up saving you time in the end. Safety is our number one priority, and the extra congestion in construction zones always calls for you to be more aware of your surroundings. If you do have to drive through the intersection, take your time and follow the posted speed limit. We want everyone to get to where they need to be, that includes our crews making it home at the end of the day.”

As with the February closure, City staff will work with contractors to monitor traffic through this intersection during construction. Feedback from residents and motorists can be helpful in making traffic adjustments. If there are problems or concerns we’d like to hear from you. There are several ways to reach out to us. The Southlake Mobility Facebook page is a great and easy-to-access resource, or you can contact us through the Connect Southlake website.

In anticipation of this closure, crews have been busy working on the new roadway surrounding the intersection. They have been making great progress on the southbound lanes with subgrade preparation (creating a level surface for the new roadway) and hope to start paving soon.

Section of Highland Street and N. White Chapel Boulevard intersection to be closed temporarily

As crews continue to make progress on the N. White Chapel widening project, they will temporarily close the east leg of the Highland St. and N. White Chapel intersection.

Weather permitting, the closure will start after the morning traffic peak on Monday, February 11 and is expected to last until Friday, February 15.

The City’s contractor will be lowering the existing 20-inch water main currently located under N. White Chapel. As illustrated in the map, vehicles will not be able to turn east onto Highland from N. White Chapel or cross the intersection as they drive west. Vehicles can still turn west onto Highland or continue on N. White Chapel.  Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes and try to avoid the intersection while work is being completed.

This work will continue to move the project along to a completed roundabout in the spring.

City staff is also working with contractors to monitor and adjust signal timing at the SH 114 and N. White Chapel intersection so that traffic is allowed more time to get through the Highland and N. White Chapel intersection.

“As we continue to make progress on this project it puts us one step closer to overall improved mobility along this corridor,” notes Deputy Director of Public Works and City Engineer Kyle Hogue. “Even though construction projects can be frustrating for drivers, we really appreciate the feedback we’ve received along the way. Letting us know when situations get better or worse helps us address concerns as they arise and do what we can to make improvements. Please keep talking to us. Reaching out through our Mobility Facebook page or the website is a great way to get in touch with us.”

DFW Connector: Bridge Opening and Weekend Work

Nearly eight months after a third-party incident, NorthGate Constructors will open the new east side of Texan Trail bridge to the public this weekend. In addition, crews will continue bridge demolition north of DFW Airport and set bridge beams over SH 26.

First, crews will open the new east side of Texan Trail bridge beginning at 8 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 21. Moving traffic to this new construction, slated to end at 6 a.m. on Sept. 24, will allow four lanes of traffic on the new bridge – one dedicated straight lane and one dedicated left-turn lane in each direction. NorthGate will need the following closures in order to facilitate the bridge opening:

Second, after accommodating Grapevine’s annual GrapeFest festival last weekend, NorthGate demolition crews will be back to work this weekend, starting Friday, Sept. 21 at 8 p.m. until Monday, Sept. 24 at 6 a.m. Crews will need the following closures to complete demolition on the old westbound SH 114 off-ramp to southbound International Parkway/DFW Airport:

Finally, NorthGate will set girders, or horizontal bridge beams, on the new eastbound SH 114 mainlane bridge over SH 26 this weekend. This piece of work will require the following:

  • Full highway closure on north and southbound SH 26 at SH 114. Click here to see a detour map.
  • Associated closure: Eastbound SH 114 frontage road east of FM 1709/Southlake Boulevard (U-turn).
