Update: August 3, 2016 – Contractors continue to make progress on storm drain work and the work is currently ahead of schedule. Temporary paving along Peytonville Avenue is expected to start Thursday, August 4, 2016.
Work continues to progress on Dove Road, moving from Shadow Creek Court to French Circle and North Peytonville Avenue.
Dove Road remains closed between Randol Mill Avenue and North Peytonville Avenue. Work progressed last week, reaching Shadow Creek Court. Contractors will continue to work installing drainage infrastructure between French Circle and North Peytonville Avenue.

The paving of Sam School Road has begun and drivers should start seeing new progress on this developer driven road project.
In mid-2015, Centurion American began a roadway project to realign Sam School Road with North Peytonville Avenue. The work is part of their Southlake Meadows subdivision development project and is a preparatory step for the construction of a future roundabout at Sam School Road, Dove Road and North Peytonville Avenue.
Work ran into some challenges however, and, as a result of those challenges, delays. The City delays haven’t gone unnoticed with social media and email comments about the project’s timeline and questions about why work hasn’t been completed.
Now that paving is underway, it should be completed by the end of the week, weather permitting. Once the paving is complete, the road will remain closed to test the concrete and to ensure that it’s strong enough for traffic. Testing is expected to last at least a week (weather permitting). If the tests are successful, it’s anticipated that the road will re-open shortly afterward.
The paving of the road is an important milestone and puts the project one-step closer to completion – with a newly aligned road and roundabout. Look for future updates on the City’s social media pages and MySouthlakeNews.com.
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.
