OBA: Single Lane Traffic on W. Continental

Carroll ISD’s contractors will be reducing a small section of W. Continental adjacent to Carroll Elementary School to a single lane starting Monday, June 24 to access and tap the City’s 12” water main which is located under the westbound lane.

This closure will be between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. daily until the proposed improvements to the water line are complete and the road is repaired.

The contractor has an approved traffic control plan which requires flagmen at all time to facilitate traffic. Though delays will certainly be expected, two-way traffic will be maintained at all times during this partial closure.

Construction is expected to be complete by July 2, weather permitting.

We appreciate your cooperation during this time. Please contact Public Works Operations at (817) 748-8082 with any questions and follow the Southlake Mobility Facebook page for the most up-to-date mobility news.

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

Lane switches on N. White Chapel widening project starting January 2, 2019

Despite Mother Nature’s attempts to slow down construction projects across the region with heavy rainfalls in the past months, the N. White Chapel widening project continues to remain on schedule. As the project moves forward, construction crews will be doing more work on existing roadways and are planning for some lane switches starting Wednesday, January 2, weather permitting.

Map indicating lane switch at SH 114 beginning January 2, weather permitting.

A major lane switch, starting towards the end of the week, will be at the north end, where N. White Chapel meets SH 114. Starting at SH 114, all traffic will be switched to the new northbound lanes for approximately 900 feet before crossing over the existing lanes to the new southbound lanes. All traffic will travel on the southbound lanes until re-entering the existing roadway approximately 400 feet south of Highland Avenue. This lane switch is only expected to last a couple of days.

Temporary lane switch in preparation for full lane switch.

There will be some temporary moving lane switches earlier in the week as crews prepare for the long term switch.

Motorists also need to be aware of some changes in roadway elevation during the lane switches. Temporary pavement will be added to bridge the new lanes to the existing lanes. “Driving over the temporary pavement will feel like a speed bump, so I’d like to encourage motorists to take it easy as they cross over those sections,” notes Deputy City Engineer Steven Anderson.

Signage will be in place to help motorists navigate the lane switches. Visit ConnectSouthlake.com and follow Southlake Mobility on Facebook to stay up-to-date with Southlake road projects. Have questions about this project? Give Southlake Public Works a call at 817-748-8098.

Lane configuration change scheduled for Sylvania Avenue

A lane configuration change is scheduled on Sylvania Avenue between 28th and Race streets.

Currently, Sylvania is marked as a four-lane, undivided roadway between 28th and Race streets. In response to requests from the community and in an effort to calm traffic in this primarily residential corridor, the city will reconfigure pavement markings along this segment of Sylvania Avenue to a three-lane section — one through lane in each direction and a continuous center left turn lane with 6-foot shoulders. The existing curb line of the street will remain the same.

This proposal was presented to the Oakhurst Neighborhood Association in April and again at a public meeting in August. In both cases, the proposed reconfiguration received overwhelming support.

Transportation & Public Works staff conducted an analysis of the traffic capacity needs for Sylvania Avenue and determined that the reconfiguration will provide acceptable levels of service for existing and future traffic conditions.

Work on new pavement markings will start on or about Oct. 25. Construction costs are estimated at about $37,000 with a 30- to 45-day completion time, depending on weather.

To learn more, contact Brian Jahn at 817-392- 7978.

City to Spray After Meadowlark Lane Tests Positive for WNV

The City of Southlake has received notice from Tarrant County Public Health that one mosquito trap in Southlake has tested positive for West Nile Virus.

The positive West Nile Virus trap is located in the 100 block of Meadowlark Lane.

The City will begin spraying within the half-mile radius from the trap location. Spaying will occur Saturday night, September 22nd through Monday night, September 24th, weather permitting.  The chemicals in the spray are specifically designed to target mosquitoes with a quick burn-off in sunlight to mitigate any pet health concerns.

Fire Chief Mike Starr who also oversees emergency management services, asks residents to continue taking protective measures to help reduce the mosquito population including:

  • Drain standing water in artificial containers; this is the primary source of mosquitoes
  • Dress in long sleeves
  • Wear insect repellent containing DEET

For more information about West Nile Virus, personal protective measures, or response actions, please visit CityofSouthlake.com or MySouthlakeNews.com. And as always, if you have any mosquito concerns, please reach out to our environmental and emergency management coordinator Amanda Meneses at (817) 748-8903 or email her at ameneses@ci.southlake.tx.us.
