FM 1938 Update – Week of October 19, 2015

TxDOT will be closing some access driveways on FM 1938, south of Southlake Boulevard (FM 1709), as part of the FM 1938 Phase II construction project.

Upcoming driveway closures for the week of October 19, 2015

Upcoming driveway closures for the week of October 19, 2015

Beginning the week of October 19, 2015, the middle access driveway on the east side of FM 1938 (Davis Blvd) south of FM 1709 (Southlake Blvd) is planned to be temporarily closed for approximately four days in order to perform storm drainage installation.  During this time, the southern access driveway (near MOOYAH) will be open to provide access from FM 1938 (see picture for driveway closure/open locations).

Once the installation of the storm drain is complete, the two driveways will revert back to the previous configuration.  All other driveway configurations will remain as shown until further notice while construction activity continues in this area.  Please use alternate driveways to access your destination.

The FM 1938 project continues to roll along, making significant progress and we appreciate your continued patience going forward. The project, once finished, will improve mobility greatly at the intersection of FM 1709/FM 1938 and north along FM 1938 (Davis Boulevard).

FM 1938 Construction Update

Clearing of right-of-way on northbound Randol Mill (FM 1938)

Construction activity is ramping up on the FM 1938 Phase II project. Over the last few weeks, work has begun on the right-of-way area of FM 1938 as TxDOT contractors have cleared and cleaned the area north of the Southlake Boulevard (FM 1709) and FM 1938 intersection. Future work on the project will see the contractor placing temporary signals at the intersection of FM 1938 and FM 1709 in preparation of a future traffic switch and road side construction at the following locations:

  • Beam Drive
  • Kingswood Drive 
  • Palomar Trail
  • Hillside Court
  • Top Rail Lane. 

TxDOT currently has message boards at the project limits and will use them to announce future road work to motorists. The City will also post updates on upcoming FM 1938 Phase II construction to the City’s website, Facebook and Twitter pages. In the mean time, keep the following tips in mind when driving through work zones:

  • Slow Down
  • Always Follow Work Zone Speed Limits
  • Pay Attention
  • Be Patient
  • Plan Ahead
  • Stay Alert: Don’t Talk or Text While Driving
