Get ready for detours and lane closures on Nueces Street

Tuesday, April 23, 2019 by Tai Moses

Austin Water is slated to begin work on the Nueces Street Wastewater Rehabilitation Project this Saturday, April 27. The project will take place on Nueces Street from Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd to Eighth Street and will take about eight months to complete, so lane closures and detours are a given. Workers plan to do small sections of the street at a time so the lane closures will be staggered. The project “will extend the service life of the wastewater mains and provide a more reliable wastewater service in the area,” says the utility. Minimal digging will be required and water and wastewater service will not be affected. The first leg of the project, from April 27 to the end of May, is depicted on the map below.
