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:
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:
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.
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.
