Shoal Creek Boulevard construction to divert traffic

Friday, July 17, 2015 by Nora Ankrum

North Austin travelers can expect significant traffic delays beginning on Saturday due to several detours and closures along Shoal Creek, between Allendale Road (FM 2222) and White Rock Drive. The route will be closed entirely to northbound traffic, which will be diverted to Burnet Road, and a press release from the Austin Water utility recommends that drivers and cyclists avoid the area altogether if possible. A 4,700-foot wastewater pipe buried under Shoal Creek Boulevard is to blame for the road closure. Austin Water will be rehabilitating the pipe and expects the project to last about three weeks. In the meantime, area residents will have access to neighborhoods along the route, according to AW, and there will be no disruption to water and wastewater service.
