South White Chapel Boulevard Reconstruction Complete

Reconstruction of S. White Chapel by Public Works Street crews

Reconstruction of S. White Chapel by Public Works Street crews

The South White Chapel Boulevard joint reconstruction project with Tarrant County Precinct 3 is complete.

The project, which began in June, was a joint project in partnership with Tarrant County to reconstruct/rehabilitate South White Chapel Boulevard from the Continental roundabout south to the Colleyville city limit line.

The scope of the project included:

  • Re-constructing the sub-grade and installing ribbon curb for pavement confinement and structural integrity.
  • Foundation work that consisted of installing 8-inches of sub-grade and 6-inches of pavement surface for a total 14-inch depth.
  • The bridge at the southern portion of the roadway was also milled and overlayed with new asphalt following the structural improvements that were made to that bridge earlier in the year.

Partnering with Tarrant County is an annual effort to reconstruct/rehabilitate roads within the City limits. Not only does this partnership provide cost-savings to the City, it also supplements one of the Public Works Department’s goals to develop, build and maintain a high quality transportation infrastructure. In the end, maintaining City streets is critical to improving mobility and ensuring the safety and security of motorists traveling on Southlake’s roads.

Southlake Public Works has partnered with Tarrant County Precinct 3 to reconstruct South White Chapel Boulevard from the Colleyville border, north to West Continental Boulevard. The project started June 1st and is expected to be completed mid to late August 2015, weather permitting.

The work will be done in the following phases:

  • Phase 1: Thursday, June 4 and Friday, June 5, 2015, crews will mill 2 inches off the existing roadway asphalt surface/bridge.
  • Phase 2:  Monday, June 8, 2015, crews will begin pulverizing/stabilizing roadway sub grade.  
  • Phase 3:  Crews will install the asphalt drive surface and begin constructing concrete ribbon curb on both sides of the roadway.
  • Phase 4: Complete asphalt installation, back fill roadway shoulders, sod, and open roadway.

Working hours are from 8 AM – 4 PM, Monday through Friday. During the designated construction hours, South White Chapel Boulevard will be reduced to one lane of traffic. Delays should be anticipated and motorists are asked to be patient and follow directions from traffic control personnel if traveling in the area between 8 AM and 4 PM.

It’s also important to note that the work will not impact services such as mail, trash collection and deliveries. For questions or concerns, please contact Southlake Public Works at (817) 748-8604.

South White Chapel Bridge Now Open

The South White Chapel Bridge is now OPEN—seven (7) days ahead of schedule!

On Wednesday, December 31, 2014, the South White Chapel Bridge was opened back up to traffic following a three week closure that began the implementation of mitigation efforts to address erosion concerns around the bridge’s columns and supports.  Crews worked diligently to pour new concrete collars around the bridge columns, which will enhance the column support of the bridge and ensure the bridge’s structural integrity.

The City has appreciated your patience during this closure and we recognize the inconvenience it may have caused some motorists.

“Due to the nature of the work, closing the bridge was deemed necessary in order to maximize the success of the mitigation efforts being undertaken,” notes Director of Public Works Robert Price, “we felt it necessary to limit loads on the bridge for safety reasons as well as construction efficiency.”

Although the bridge is opened, work will continue for the next several months on and around the South White Chapel Bridge as crews continue to implement erosion control and scour mitigation efforts. Temporary lane closures and delays may be likely as the work continues so please check for any updates regarding temporary closures/delays via the City’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
