Completed projectState Street connector


State Street connector
The Southlake Public Works Streets/Drainage Division completed the State Street roadway connector, which is located between Federal Way and Division Street, in November. The connector will allow traffic to access SH 114 directly from State Street in Southlake Town Square. By providing this option, traffic in and out of Town Square should move more freely and lessen the amount of congestion on North Carroll Avenue.
Timeline: October-November
Cost: $159,000
Funding sources: city of Southlake
