Phase One of Park Village development.
Commuters and motorists traveling down S. Carroll Avenue and Southlake Boulevard will notice the large amount of new construction happening at this intersection.
The new wave of construction taking place at this intersection will become home to a new, 185,000 square foot shopping center called Park Village.
The newest development underway in Southlake means news jobs and a thriving economy for the city. However, with new businesses means a temporary inconvenience due to construction activity.
The project will consist of more than 190,000 square feet and will sit on 22 acres of land.
Various restaurants and businesses are setting up shop in Park Village, including Luna Grill, Mesa Veracruz Coastal Cuisine, Modmarket, Potbelly and the Lash Lounge.
Keeping in line with the Park Village theme of healthy living, Modmarket will provide fresh, healthy eats at a cost-effective price.
Consequently, drivers should be aware of the upcoming construction on S. Carroll Avenue, according to mysouthlakenews.com.
Beginning this week, the Park Village contractor will begin Phase 1 of a two-phase project meant to aide in the preparation of Park Villages’ scheduled fall opening. Construction on both phases is expected to last for 60 days.
Both phases will include the widening of Carroll Avenue along the Park Village frontage, as well as the construction of a deceleration lane for the main drive into the development as well as center median improvements.
To maintain traffic flow through the construction area, traffic will be shifted so that drivers will have access to one northbound lane and two southbound lanes of S. Carroll Avenue.
As a result, delays are expected once the traffic switch goes into motion. The city is advising that motorists seek alternative routes when possible.
