Tree Removal along east side of Randol Mill Avenue
Beginning the week of September 10th, residents and motorists south of the new intersection of Randol Mill and Randol Mill Bend will begin to see the removal of trees along the east side of the future FM1938 in Southlake. Circle C Construction will also begin the open cut installation of the 30-inch water transmission main and a parallel 12-inch water line along the east side of Randol Mill from the new intersection of Randol Mill Bend and Randol Mill south to Palomar Trail. The work is anticipated to move from north to south.
In order for Circle C Construction, the city’s utility contractor, to install the 30-inch line, it is necessary for them to clear all trees from the roadway to the edge of the City’s 16-foot wide right of way located along the east side of the future FM 1938 roadway. The contractor will also install tree protection, as needed to preserve any trees within private property, east of the newly acquired right of way.
As part of the future FM1938 roadway improvement project, Tarrant County acquired the TxDOT right of way for the construction of the roadway, as well as the 16-foot wide city right of way necessary for the construction of the 30-inch water line. Right of way acquisition is complete along the east side of Randol Mill Avenue down to Palomar Trail. Circle C notified the property owners facing Randol Mill Avenue this past week (see attached notice).
The entire length of the new supply line project is a little more than five miles. Approximately, 1.4 miles of the new pipeline has been completed since this project began several years ago. Most recently, the contractor has completed the installation of the line beneath SH 114 and is currently working in several different areas south of SH 114. The new 30-inch pipe is being installed along the south side of SH 114, west of Kirkwood Blvd to Precinct Line which will be known as the future Davis Boulevard.
Also, the contractor has been installing underground casing where the project called for boring along the east curb of the new FM1938, south of Dove Road in the Town of Westlake. Construction of the 30-inch water transmission main and the TW King Meter Station is scheduled to be complete by Summer 2013.
