N. White Chapel Widening Project Staying on Schedule

Contractors working on the N. White Chapel widening project, between Highland Ave. and SH 114, are continuing to work on schedule.

“So far Mother Nature has cooperated with us, and the work is moving along smoothly and on or a little ahead of schedule,” said Deputy City Engineer Steven Anderson. “If the weather doesn’t interfere too much we’ll be able to make some great progress this summer.”

On Saturday, July 14, there will be a complete lane closure on N. White Chaple, from Highland Ave. to SH 114, for utility work. The closure will start around 10 a.m. and with an expected completion around 1 p.m. will all lanes reopened.

The current traffic pattern, with the temporary lane shift, will remain in place while the contractor continues to install utility infrastructure. The 12-inch water line and sanitary sewer installation are about 90% complete. Up next is the storm drain installation, set to begin in the next couple of weeks.

Drivers are reminded to use caution when traveling through the work zone.

Southlake Town Hall and Library Closed for Repairs This Weekend

Southlake Town Hall—including the Library, will be closed this weekend to fix a leak in the water service line. Repairs will begin at 7:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 18, and are expected to be complete by the end of the weekend.

In preparation for the repair, parking spaces along the west side of Town Hall – across from Jamba Juice, Rockfish Grill, and Mi Cocina – will be fenced off starting at noon on Friday, October 17. Blocking off the spaces is a safety measure and is needed to allow water department crews to begin moving in the necessary equipment for the Saturday repair.

Book drops will remain open and customers will have an extra day with their materials, but customers are asked to use the book drops located near the Town Hall West garage, or the on north side of town hall. The special event Do You Know Who You Are for teen girls has moved to Barnes and Noble Southlake at 11 a.m.

Your patience is appreciated during these repairs.
