Earlier this week, Public Works Streets and Drainage crews dug test pits to prepare for construction at the intersection of the southbound lanes at Zena Rucker Road and S. Carroll Avenue.
With the extension of Zena Rucker Road approaching completion, traffic is expected to increase in the area as shoppers and pedestrians travel to the Shops of Southlake. The S. Carroll Avenue CIP project will turn the asphalt lane into a concrete lane so the entire roadway will be comprised of the same material for a more long-term use and future expansion.
The project is estimated to start within two weeks and completed in six weeks, weather permitting.
The improvements are a part of the 2030 Master Mobility Plan.

There’s about to be a lot of activity at the site of the new Zena Rucker extension. Surveyors were on site this week at the Zena Rucker and Tower Boulevard intersection preparing the area for the roundabout extension and utility work for Phase I of the Zena Rucker Road project.
Soon, motorists will be able travel all the way through Zena Rucker Road to access Park Village and the Shops of Southlake. Extending the road will also improve mobility along Byron Nelson Parkway and South Carroll Avenue.
Once Phase I and II are completed, the new roadway will extend between Matthews Court and Tower Boulevard and the public artwork the “Mockingbird Tree” will be installed in the new roundabout. Pedestrians can also look forward to enjoying the new sidewalks to travel on.
