Roadwork is Part of the New Braunfels Utilities Castell Avenue-East 24-inch Water Line Project
(New Braunfels, TX – October 6, 2022) – New Braunfels Utilities (NBU) continues its work on the Castell Avenue 24-Inch Water Line – East major infrastructure improvement project. Located in the downtown New Braunfels area, this project is designed to increase water transmission capacity and reliability by replacing severely aged infrastructure. When completed, these improvements are expected to reduce water main breaks, leading to fewer maintenance events and lowering long-term repair costs.
As a part of this project, Castell Avenue at Elm Street and Post Office Drive, and Castell Avenue at Coll Street will have lane closures throughout the month of October 2022, to allow D. Guerra Construction to remove and replace sewer lines in the area. Traffic will continue to have access to the post office at all times during construction. Vehicular traffic should expect detour routes. Flaggers will on-site help to control the flow of traffic around the road construction.
A road closure is planned on Merriweather Street beginning October 28, 2022, through October 31, 2022. Merriweather Street will be closed on the east side from Castell Avenue to Groos Street and on the west side from Castell Avenue to McQueeney Road. Vehicular traffic should expect detour routes. Flagging operations will be in place during construction.
New Braunfels Utilities will provide up-to-date traffic impacts for Capital Improvement Projects such as this one on nbutexas.com/current-construction-impacts-and-road-closures.
All work is expected to be completed as scheduled, weather permitting.
Contact Desirae Medellin at 830.608.8971 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding the project.
