Metric Boulevard construction will cause delays

Friday, August 28, 2015 by Nora Ankrum

North Austin drivers and cyclists can expect traffic delays over the next few weeks along the stretch of Metric Boulevard that extends from Kramer Lane to Parmer Lane. The Public Works Department will begin repaving the road next week, and the project will require reducing traffic to one lane and restricting bike lane access. Driveways and sidewalks in the area will remain open, and Austin Police Department officers will be on hand to direct vehicles. Most of the work will take place at night, between 8 p.m. and 6:30 a.m. However, some daytime construction is scheduled for Tuesday through Friday, Sept. 1-4, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Completion of the project is expected by the end of September.
