Castell Avenue 24-inch Water Line Project

This Project will provide an additional 24-inch transmission mainline needed to send water from downtown New Braunfels to the County Line ground storage tank and surrounding areas and replace aging water and sewer lines. The Project was separated into two bid packages, East and West.

No weekend work will be allowed in the downtown areas and sidewalks are to remain open, to the extent possible, for pedestrian traffic. Service connections from the water and wastewater lines to each individual business will be completed between Monday and Thursday, 2:00 a.m. – 6:00 a.m. to minimize impacts of service outages.

Project Overview Map


McQueeney 24-inch Water Line Project

This project will upgrade existing infrastructure by replacing a 12-inch water line along McQueeney Road from County Line Road to the County Line Memorial Trail with 18-inch and 24-inch gravity mains. These improvements will provide additional capacity for future growth in the area.

Scheduled Traffic Impacts

Schedules are subject to change.

  •  McQueeney Road between IH-35 southbound frontage road and Perryman Street will remain closed through March 4, 2022, to allow New Braunfels Utilities (NBU) contracted crews to install a bore pit for water infrastructure under IH-35 in the eastbound lane of McQueeney Road between Perryman Street and the IH-35 Frontage Road. The closures are clearly marked and detour signs will guide traffic around closures.
  • The 700 Block of South Academy Avenue between Elm Street and West Nacogdoches Street will be closed from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. beginning Monday, January 10, through Friday, January 28, 2022. Crews will replace wastewater infrastructure during this time. As a detour, motorists should plan to use Elm Street, West Nacogdoches Street, and Hill Avenue to get back onto South Academy Avenue.
