Traffic in Southlake

Traffic congestion is not just a Southlake issue. Congested roadways are all over DFW. The economic strength of our region has resulted in growth that strains our current infrastructure. With DFW's 2040 population projected to be more than 10 million people, and Southlake's buildout population expected to be 34,000 people, our mobility strategies must also recognize and address the regional traffic coming through the city. Local and pass-through traffic contributes to mobility challenges in Southlake, particularly true during peak periods. The City's traffic count reports provide a snapshot of the traffic volume at a fixed point in time. The City uses the data to determine trends and identify hot traffic spots like Southlake Boulevard.

Traffic Management Division

Led by Public Works Director Rob Cohen, this team has close to 100 years of engineering experience. They put that expertise to work daily, solving the puzzle of better and safer traffic management. If you have a question about traffic around town, we have answers. Contact us 24/7.

The City of Southlake's Traffic Management Division was created to respond to these current and future transportation needs. The team works closely with the City's Office of Traffic Management, a cross-departmental employee group committed to improving driver, pedestrian, and bicycle safety within Southlake.

The division also works with many regional partners, including:

  • TXDOT is our partner on state-owned roads, highways, or traffic signals. Examples include FM 1938, Southlake Boulevard (FM 1709), and SH 114.  
  • NCTCOG is our partner when dealing with traffic as a region. 
  • Tarrant County is our partner in the repair of certain roadways.
  • Neighboring cities, including Grapevine, Colleyville, Keller, and Westlake, become partners whenever a mobility project runs through multiple cities.
