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).

For questions about the FM 1938 Phase II project, please contact Stephen Ranft, TxDOT mobility coordinator, at fm1938mobility@gmail.com or 817-462-0520.

Roundabout coming to Peytonville Avenue and Sam School Road

Proposed new roundabout at Sam School Road/North Peytonvill Avenue

Proposed new roundabout at Sam School Road/North Peytonville Avenue

Beginning this summer, significant roadway work will begin in the area of Sam School Road, North Peytonville Avenue and West Dove Road.

Centurion American, the developer of the proposed Southlake Meadows subdivision, will be realigning Sam School Road with North Peytonville Avenue in preparation for construction of a new roundabout at Sam School Road, Dove Road and North Peytonville Avenue.

Currently, there is significant traffic congestion in the vicinity of the intersection of North Peytonville Avenue and West Dove Road during the peak AM and peak PM hours (primarily related to school traffic).

This project addresses current the traffic backup at South Peytonville Avenue and Dove Road as well as Sam School Road and Dove Road. Long term, the project will address the traffic expected from future developments in this area of the City.

The timing of the construction – during the summer months when school is out – was chosen to provide minimal impact to the driving public. However, the City will be working closely with the developer to provide residents and motorists regular updates on road closures or other traffic impacts as the project gets underway.

Please make sure to visit the City’s website and social media sites for up to date information about this, and other projects happening in Southlake.

For questions about this project, please contact Alex Ayala, P.E. at 817-748-8274.
