More lane closures for downtown water main construction

Monday, June 27, 2016 by Kayleigh Hughes

Austin Water has released some updates on the lane closures and traffic impacts from the construction of a reclaimed water main in the downtown area. As of June 24, there are five new traffic updates to help you plan your routes through the city. During the weekend of July 9-10, MLK Boulevard will be reduced to one lane each way and Trinity Street will be reduced to one through lane going north, with lanes reduced for one block on either side of Trinity. Moving down a few blocks, the eastbound lane of 12th Street between Trinity and Red River streets will be closed until July 1. On 10th and Red River, construction will be happening in the intersection and southward one block, with one lane being maintained each way. Over on West Fifth Street between San Antonio and Guadalupe streets, for about two weeks two lanes will be closed and two will be open, with only the southbound lane of San Antonio Street open. Finally, construction on West Avenue at 10th Street will continue for the next two months and move northward in one-block increments to West 14th Street, with accompanying closures as the work moves north.
