With the New Year comes the excitement for new things to come. In Southlake, 2019 will bring a new and improved N. White Chapel Boulevard.
Crews have been steadily making progress on the widening of N. White Chapel between Highland Street and SH 114. Part of a larger N. White Chapel improvement project, when completed there will be a new dual-lane roundabout at Highland and N. White Chapel. Gone will be the two-lane road motorists are used to, and in its place will be landscaped divided four-lane road.
The second part of this Capital Improvement Project will be the widening of N. White Chapel from Emerald Boulevard to Highland. When completed, N. White Chapel will be a four-lane road from FM 1709 to SH 114.
Since spring 2018 crews have:
- Installed a new 12-inch water line
- Installed new sanitary sewer lines
- Installed new storm drains
- Paved portions of the roundabout, and
- Paved portions of north and southbound lanes
“We are pleased with the progress of this project. It will be a much-needed improvement,” noted Public Works Director Rob Cohen. “It was a wet fall, but despite the rain, we still made significant progress and are still on track for a fall 2019 completion of this phase of the overall improvement. The additional lanes and new roundabout will make a positive difference for motorists on this section of N. White Chapel.”
As the project continues to move forward, motorists can expect lane switches and lane closures, however, two-way traffic will be maintained throughout the project. As always, motorists are reminded to use caution and be aware of their surroundings as they drive through the construction zone.
