The Shady Oaks Drive street rehabilitation project enters the home stretch and is on track to meet its mid- August completion date.

Public Works Streets crews have been working hard to finish the street rehabilitation along Shady Oaks Drive. The project, which began June 16, 2016 and  is this year’s street rehabilitation collaboration with Tarrant County Precinct 3, has made significant repairs and corrections to the segment of Shady Oaks from the north property line of Bicentennial Park to West Highland Street. To date, crews have paved and added new layers of asphalt to the road (see photo).

Although the work may look complete, there are some items that remain. This week, you’ll see crews back-fill and complete sod work. In addition, crews will:

  • Install flashing, pedestrian crossing at Sherwood and Shady Oaks intersection.
  • Install a concrete drive approach.
  • Repair the sidewalk along 800 Shady Oaks.
  • Replace pavement markings.

The Shady Oaks street rehabilitation project is expected to be complete before school starts on Monday, August 22, 2016.

Three More Samples for West Nile Found in Southlake

WNV 4DsThe City of Southlake was notified Wednesday (10/8/2014) that three mosquito samples have tested positive for the West Nile Virus. The samples were taken from traps at the 800 block of Shady Lane, the 100 block of Meadowlark Lane, and at the 700 block Ashleigh Lane.  A small portion of the Shady Lane spray zone is scheduled to take place in the 76051 zip code in Grapevine.

“We have seen recurring positive samples at these locations,” says Public Works Director Bob Price. “The City is following the West Nile Virus Action Plan to prevent positive samples, but we need the help of residents as well.”

Price adds that those residing outside of the half-mile spray radius should remain cautious, “We have six traps located strategically throughout the City—five that are stationary and one mobile. This means that when we see positive samples at these locations everyone in the area needs to be on alert.”

Price reminds everyone to look for sources of water in both the expected and unexpected places on a weekly basis and eliminate mosquito breeding grounds by draining standing water, covering outdoor containers, and treating undrainable areas with larvacide. Also, always wear insect repellent containing DEET when outdoors—especially at dusk and dawn.

The City intends to ground spray within a half-mile radius of the affected areas (see maps below) tomorrow night (10/9), Friday night (10/10), and Saturday night (10/11)—weather permitting.

The City of Southlake was notified Wednesday (9/10/2014) that three mosquito samples have tested positive for the West Nile Virus. The samples were taken from traps at 2201 Shady Oaks Drive, 870 Shady Lane, and the 700 Block of Ashleigh Lane.

The City intends to ground spray within a half-mile radius of the affected areas (see maps below) for two consecutive nights beginning Friday (9/12/2014)—weather permitting.

“Weather forecasts are predicting thunderstorms through the end of the week, which will aide in flushing existing mosquito larvae,” said Public Works Director Bob Price.

Price adds, “The rain will provide new opportunities for standing water. Following the rain, residents are strongly encouraged to thoroughly inspect their backyards and treat any standing water with larvacide.”

Anything that can hold water for just a few days can become a mosquito breeding ground. Be sure to check your property for standing water. In addition to checking small containers, house gutters and French drains, staff encourages you to check for unexpected areas such as your water meter box, any tree holes, blocked irrigation heads, gutter drains and other underground pipes, pool overflow pipes, storm drains for the presence of standing water.

Residents should always remember to wear insect repellent containing DEET when outdoors, especially at dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.
