New Braunfels Utilities Castell Avenue Infrastructure Improvement Project Announces May Updates
Roadwork is Part of the New Braunfels Utilities Castell Avenue 24-inch Waterline Project – East
(New Braunfels, TX – May 18, 2022) – New Braunfels Utilities (NBU) continues its major construction work on the Castell Avenue 24-inch Waterline Project, which broke ground in May 2021. The Project is one of NBU’s 145 Capital Improvement Projects budgeted at $14.7 million. Upon completion, the Project will add an additional 24-inch transmission mainline, which will send water from downtown New Braunfels to the County Line ground storage tank and replace aging infrastructure, reducing water main breaks and lowering long-term repair costs.
As part of this Project, D. Guerra Guerra Construction will be working to install wastewater lines and a 24-inch Ductile Iron waterline within and along Castell Avenue.
The May 2022 road impacts are:
- Elm Street to Butcher Street will be closed through May 30, 2022.
- Butcher Street to Coll Street will be closed through June 6, 2022.
- Coll Street to San Antonio Street will be closed daily from 1:00 – 11:00 a.m., through September 2022. Late night and morning construction work will be done to allow for the flow of vehicular and pedestrian traffic during the day and to help minimize construction interruptions for area businesses.
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 and on its Facebook and Twitter social media channels.
Detours will be marked. All work is expected to be completed as scheduled, weather permitting.
