Traffic Impact Announcements for September 2022

(New Braunfels, TX – August 12, 2022) – New Braunfels Utilities (NBU) began work on its $425,000 East South Street and South Central Avenue Water Line Realignment Project on June 20, 2022. Upon completion, the project will improve the area’s aging water infrastructure in connection with the City of New Braunfels completing its City-wide roadway project.

Installation of the waterlines at Central Avenue and South Street,  scheduled for completion in mid-August 2022, has been extended to Friday, September 2, 2022. Repairs to aging infrastructure required additional work and materials to complete the project. Roadways will remain closed to thru-traffic during construction; however, vehicular access to residences and businesses will be maintained at all times. Minor detours may be required for short periods of time during water line and customer service line tie-ins.

On August 15 – 17, 2022, MGC, NBU’s contractor, will be closing the inside eastbound lane of Common Street to replace a valve located at the intersection of Common Street and Central Avenue. This work is part of the utility relocations related to the City of New Braunfels City-wide roadway project.

The East South Street and South Central Avenue Water Line Realignment Project is relocating and replacing approximately 900 linear feet (LF) of the existing six-inch water line between South Union Avenue and South Houston Avenue with an eight-inch water line. Part of this project is to relocate approximately 100 LF of the existing eight-inch water line from the East South Street intersection toward Common Street.
