Motorists can now enjoy a much smoother ride on Continental Blvd. thanks to the partnership between the City of Southlake and Tarrant County Precinct No. 3.
The nearly three-mile project spanned from Davis Blvd. east to 600 feet past the Byron Nelson Parkway intersection.
“With this being such a busy area of the City, we’re glad to have this project completed on time,” said Public Works Director Rob Cohen. “These types of improvements are important for improving mobility in Southlake. Helping people get around as efficiently and safely as possible is always going to be one of our top priorities.”
Southlake Public Works Streets Division, along with Tarrant County, completed the three phase project that included milling, asphalt resurfacing and striping and pavement marking. The new pavement markings will help increase visibility and safety for motorists and pedestrians.
In March 2018, City Council approved moving forward with the $450,000 investment. The annual joint project with Tarrant County serves as a cost savings to the city.
A project to complete the remaining portion of Continental Blvd. from Byron Nelson Parkway to S. Kimball Ave. will be included as part of the FY 2019 Budget.
