Southwest Boulevard Project Update

Southwest Boulevard's 800 block is open to traffic. Starting Monday, May 20, 2024, Sam Gaines Construction will close the left turn lane of the Dix Road Connector at Southwest Blvd. to complete the Southwest Boulevard Crosswalk project. This closure is expected to last four days.

The City is enhancing the greenway along Southwest Blvd to feature a single crossing, replacing the former crossing at Southwest Blvd and the Dix Road Connector. This upgrade includes a new raised crosswalk with a central median island and rectangular rapid flashing beacon (RRFB) pedestrian crossing lights. Additionally, the project entails constructing two new storm water inlets and a section of new pavement on Southwest Boulevard.

We sincerely appreciate the community’s patience during this construction period and eagerly anticipate the improved infrastructure it will bring to our city’s core roads.
