West Campus street closure at Rio Grande

Wednesday, March 16, 2016 by Nora Ankrum

If you thought traffic might lighten up around West Campus over spring break, think again. Rio Grande Street, from 24th to 26th streets, will be closed through March 17 as city crews work around the clock to install a new waterline. All traffic will be rerouted along adjacent streets. Not only will there be no drive-through traffic or parking allowed along the affected stretch of Rio Grande, but the sidewalk from 24th Street to 25th Street will be closed to pedestrians as well. “Access to businesses and residences will be maintained, though limited,” according to a statement from the Public Works Department. The waterline installation is part of the Rio Grande Street Reconstruction and Utility Adjustment Project. The area is anticipated to reopen on March 18.
