The City has contracted with Santa Clara Construction of Austin to replace an existing 6 inch water line with a 12 inch water line along Cheatham Street, between CM Allen Parkway to near Riverside Drive. This project will replace deteriorating mains, increase system reliability and improve water system pressure in the area.
The construction will include boring under the San Marcos River to connect to an existing main on the east side of the river. For this first phase of the work, the intersection of Cheatham will be reduced to one-way eastbound with access allowed to Reynolds Street. Flaggers will be present at the intersection during daytime hours. Traffic on Riverside Dr. will be detoured to the S IH35 frontage road south to CM Allen.
The second phase of construction will allow for two-way traffic on Cheatham Street with flagging operations during daytime hours.
Construction is scheduled to begin Monday, April 23. The first phase will be complete by Memorial Day in time for the Lions Club Tube Rental opening. The full project should be complete within three months, weather permitting.
