School is set to start Monday, August 24, 2015, but with construction on northbound FM 1938 and at the intersection of FM 1938 and Southlake Boulevard (FM 1709), getting to one campus – Florence Elementary – may be a little tricky if you’re used to taking Southlake Boulevard (FM 1709) westward to Pearson Lane or FM 1938 north to Johnson Road.

The construction at the intersection of FM 1938 and Southlake Boulevard and the closing of Johnson Road off FM 1938 planned for the week of August 31, 2015 will make accessing the campus difficult if you’re coming from Southlake.  With that in mind, parents are advised to seek alternate routes to the Florence Elementary campus.

The City is suggesting motorists take westbound Florence Road to southbound N. Pearson Lane. From Pearson Lane, access to Florence Elementary can be made in the following ways:

  1. Johnson Road eastbound off Pearson Lane then south on Harell Drive
  2. Gray Lane eastbound off Pearson Lane then north on Harrell Drive
  3. Jordan Drive eastbound off Pearson Lane then north on Harrell Drive

Construction surrounding these locations will continue for at least the next year.

Keller residents may notice increased traffic in the area as these alternate routes are utilized. Please allow for enough time to reach your destination.

For questions about the FM 1938 project, TxDOT has appointed a mobility coordinator named Stephen Ranft. He can be reached at fm1938mobility@gmail.com or 817-462-0520.
