Orange Barrel Alert – Illuminated Street Name Sign Installation

ILSN ConceptIn August, we informed you regarding the installation of the the Illuminated Street Name (ILSN) signs going up at the intersections along Southlake Boulevard (FM 1709).  However, some unforeseen challenges resulted in the project’s delay.  Beginning this month, the ILSN project will resume.

On Saturday, October 18, 2014, the City’s contractor Durable Specialties Inc will begin installing the Illuminated Street Name Signs ( ILSNs) at the intersections along Southlake Boulevard (FM 1709). Motorists should expect rolling lane closures on Southlake Boulevard from October 18 through the week of October 20th while the signs are installed.  Installation will take about a week (weather permitting). The contractor will have two to three crews working in an effort to expedite the project and limit the duration of lane closures.

Motorists are asked to use caution when traveling along Southlake Boulevard (FM 1709) during the installation.  For more information about the Illuminated Street Name Signs, please visit the project page. For questions about the project, please contact Steve Anderson, P.E., C.F.M in the Public Works Department at 817-748-8101.
