Flower Mound Town Council voted March 2 to award a $1.2 million construction contract to Reliable Paving Inc. to make improvements to Garden Ridge Boulevard and Peters Colony Road.

Though the projects are separate, the town bid them together to secure a more “favorable price,” according to officials.

Council Member Ben Bumgarner cast the sole dissenting vote.

The Peters Colony Road project will include the construction of a roundabout at the intersection of Peters Colony Road, Quail Run Road and Auburn Drive. Construction crews will also install eight-foot-wide, multiuse trail crossings from Auburn Drive to Peters Colony Road.

“The current layout of the Quail Run Road, Auburn Drive and Peters Colony Road intersection creates dangerous turning movements for traffic due to insufficient stopping sight distance,” said Blake Hummel, senior project engineer for Flower Mound, in a council memo.


Due to the site’s proximity to Flower Mound High School, construction is slated to begin this summer.

For the Garden Ridge Boulevard project, crews will reconfigure southbound Garden Ridge Boulevard at FM 3040 to accommodate a dedicated right-turn lane, two thru lanes and a left-turn lane, according to town officials. The project will also include pedestrian and landscape improvements in the area.

“Currently, the lack of a second thru lane for southbound Garden Ridge Boulevard creates significant morning traffic congestion, and this project will help alleviate some of that congestion,” Hummel stated.
