Beginning Jan. 4, area residents can expect construction activity for a Texas Department of Transportation project to replace the bridge over Big Bear Creek.

Portions of South White Chapel Boulevard and Pleasant Run Road will be closed for the duration of the project through this summer.

Pleasant Run Road is closed from John McCain Road to the Colleyville-Southlake border where Pleasant Run Road turns into White Chapel Boulevard. The city of Colleyville will use the estimated six-month closure to improve sidewalks and water lines along Pleasant Run Road.

Only local traffic will be permitted access to barricaded areas, and detours will be available for Southlake residents via Continental Boulevard and Brumlow Avenue. Bent Creek neighborhood residents will still have access along White Chapel Road.
