Continental Blvd. Resurfacing Project Complete

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.

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. Continental Blvd Resurfacing MSN Interior Photo1

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.

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.
