Lane Closure on EB SH 114 – Delta Marriott Hotel Construction

Starting Monday, April 15, the right lane of eastbound SH 114 frontage road, just after N. White Chapel will be closed. The closure is expected to last for about five months.

All road closures on SH 114 and its frontage road are managed through TxDOT who reviews and approves requests for any changes to traffic patterns. The hotel developers requested and were granted a permit for the closure to build a deceleration lane for two new entrances for the new Delta Marriott Hotel under construction at that site.

The hotel will be located at the SE corner of N. White Chapel and SH 114.

We ask motorists to proceed with caution when traveling through the area as construction vehicles enter and exit the site and as motorists navigate through work zones for two different projects.

Thank you for your patience. For updates, follow Southlake Mobility on Facebook and visit www.ConnectSouthlake.com

Council Approves Construction Services Agreement to Repair Fountain in Town Square

City Council recently approved a contract agreement with Falkenberg Construction to replace the mechanical vault for the fountain located at Frank Edgar Cornish, IV Park in Town Square.

The scope of the project includes the replacement of the existing vault, and the removal and replacement of the pavers surrounding the vault. The vault contains the components (pumps, motors, electrical, etc.) necessary for the operation of the fountain within the park. The existing vault is in need of replacement due to extensive corrosion over the last 10 years.

The ever so popular fountain sits in the middle of dining and shopping on the south end of Town Square. It is a common spot for shoppers, kids, and visitors to sit on the benches and enjoy the ambiance the fountain creates.

Repairs are set to take place in early July after Stars and Stripes, weather permitting.

N. White Chapel Bridge Construction Update

Construction crews continue to make progress on the N. White Chapel Culvert crossing bridge.

The road has been closed since late September when heavy rain and floodwater caused structural damage.

While the weather has improved, several environmental factors have caused some delays. City staff along with construction crews devised a plan to help continue progress.

“We made adjustments to the piling in an attempt to drain the creek quicker, as pumping typically occurs rather slowly,” explained Deputy Director of Public Works and City Engineer, Kyle Hogue. “We have also resumed excavation of the west upstream headwall.”

While construction has been underway since just after Thanksgiving, the city is working to potentially prevent future damages during inclement weather.

A few weeks ago Council Member John Huffman visited the site. “This short term solution is making everything safe, making everything drivable, in really the shortest timeframe possible” stated Council Member John Huffman in his Facebook Live video. Check out the video to get an up-close look at construction.

Construction along 287 will improve safety in fast-growing area

Construction has started along U.S. 287 in Fort Worth, a project that will extend the southbound service road and relocate the southbound ramp at Blue Mound Road.

The construction is a collaborative project involving the City of Fort Worth, the Texas Department of Transportation and Tarrant County Precinct 3.

Northwest ISD Assistant Superintendent for Facilities Tim McClure said the project that has been discussed since the planning of the district’s third comprehensive high school, V.R. Eaton High School.

“The growing housing developments in this area of Fort Worth along U.S. 287 continues to be one of our fastest-growing areas of the school district. One of the challenges with the road infrastructure in and around this area is the ownership of the roadways by different agencies,” McClure said. “Our collaboration with all three agencies has been great from the start. The focus and commitment by all parties provided a solution on a project that could have taken approximately 10 years to finish to be formalized within a year.”

Late last year, school district trustees approved an interlocal agreement with Tarrant County for the road construction and transportation improvements to the southbound access road adjacent to Adams Middle School. As part of the solution, Tarrant County has arranged to provide all labor to build the road extension and new ramp, with Northwest ISD and the City of Fort Worth agreeing to equally share in materials and engineering costs. In addition, TxDOT has accelerated its process and provided resources and assets to the project.

Earlier in 2018, Fort Worth residents approved a bond addressing additional road improvements to Willow Springs and Blue Mound roads, which will result in the creation of roundabouts. The U.S. 287 service road project will solve major traffic and safety concerns affecting Schluter Elementary School, Adams Middle School and Eaton High School by eliminating the potential for accidents near the southbound access road and allowing for legal egress out of Eagle Boulevard toward U.S. 287. Currently, using Eagle Boulevard to access the U.S. 287 service road is considered an illegal traffic maneuver.

During the construction process, there should be no direct impact to traffic or changes in traffic patterns. The project is expected to be complete in time for the 2019-20 school year.
