Public Works Crews will be repairing several areas of roads damaged due to the hard freeze in February, beginning at the 1900 block of Duncanville Road, then working on Johnson Lane and Shiloh Road.  These repairs will occur with the roads remaining open, however, with one lane closed.  Please use extreme caution driving in these areas while the roadwork is underway.  

Once work crews schedule a working date for Westmoreland Road, Ovilla residents will be notified in advance.  This work will cause some detouring.  roadwork


The Main Street Parking Lot Expansion is in the final stages. Walking trails to the downtown area will be completed soon! This project is funded by the Municipal Development District that was created by the voters of Ovilla in November 2009, for the imposition of a sales and use tax at the rate of one-fourth of one percent for the purpose of financing development projects beneficial to the district.
