Starting 9 a.m. Monday, Feb. 27, contractors for the city will begin work on the West Lake Highlands Turn Lane project, which will add a new right-turn lane at the eastbound intersection of West Lake Highlands Drive and Main Street.
During the project, eastbound traffic on Lake Highlands will be closed at Main Street. Traffic will be detoured onto Lake Park Drive. Westbound traffic on Lake Highlands will still enter the neighborhood from Main Street.
This work is part of the city's current Phase 12 Residential Street Reconstruction Project, which includes reconstruction of Alta Oaks Court, Ballard Trail, and Runyon Drive. At a cost of $3.5M, the Phase 12 contract was approved by The Colony City Council in December 2022.
