Answers to Questions - Public Meeting 3/27/13

On March 27th, 2013, the City of Southlake in conjunction with Tarrant County, the City of Keller, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), and TranSystems held a public meeting regarding the FM 1938 roadway widening project. The corridor meeting was held in Southlake's Town Hall. Representatives from the City of Southlake and TranSystems Corporation, the engineering design consultant for the project, presented the project scope and provided project information. Conceptual drawings were displayed for public viewing and discussion. View the entire Public Meeting slideshow here.

Questions were collected from the audience via comment cards and placed in an FAQ section located at the bottom of the page.

Please note: The City's engineering design consultant researched the questions submitted by the public. Some of the comment cards were very detailed and, as a result, required some minor editing to remove personal information, to fit within the character limit of the FAQ, and/or to fix minor spelling mistakes. The questions, however, remain unchanged and are presented word-for-word as the City received them. If you have any concerns, please contact the project manager Alex Ayala, P.E. at 817-748-8274.
  1. "Why is there a sidewalk coming up Johnson Rd. and no other side roads?"<p>"If so, do sidewalk on Johnson it will take all trees on my property?"
  2. "Bike lanes? If not, will sidewalks be wide enough to accommodate bike and foot traffic?"
  3. "Need an approach to/from my property, approx. ½ length of the lot (middle). Please notify me upon completion of eng. drawings"
  4. "My question is why not make 1709 & 1938 an overpass/underpass. In 5/10 years from now, this area will be impacted & more space will be needed."
  5. "Johnson Rd. & Florence Rd. needs a stop light to enhance the flow of traffic."
  6. "Will there be a traffic light at 1938 & Johnson Road?"
  7. "Will the retaining wall come all the way to Johnson Road?"
  8. "Why do we need a 10-foot wide median? We need a turn lane at Top Rail as not to back up traffic u-turning to come back to Johnson Rd."
  9. "What are the projected decibels on 1938 once construction is completed and what is the maximum allowed by the City and/or State?"
  10. "Post exhibits on website."
  11. " ... We are concerned about needing a safety barrier from the road because our house will be lower than the road ..."
  12. "There was no mention of placing a new fence along the Myers Meadow subdivision...Earlier presentations indicated a new fence... Is that new fence still part of the plan?"
  13. "Assuming the answer to the Myers Meadow fence is yes, will the project remove & haul away the existing fence? Or will the HOA, who owns the fence, have the expense to do that?"
  14. "How will the runoff water from the Myers Meadows retention pond be channeled?"
  15. "When should [FM 1938] phase 2 start? Is there a timeline?"
  16. "Is our street name still going to change to FM 1938 [from Randol Mill]? When will the name change occur?"
  17. "Will the land required for Phase 2 be taken off the west side of the road down to Kingswood? ... is that still the case? We...didn't know if we were going to lose property."
  18. "...it almost looks like the street will have to curve back to the west at some point in order to accommodate the 2 additional lanes. Will the curve happen at Kingswood.?"
  19. "We also have a fence around the front of our property and the dogs also have access to our front yard... So we were wondering if the fence would have to move back while they’re working?"
  20. "Because the road will be divided, will we still be able to turn left out of and into our driveway going south? Coming home via 114, we have to wait in a long southbound line on Randol Mill..."
