11th Street Water Line Replacement Project
The 11th Street Water Line Replacement Project is scheduled to begin Monday, November 7. This project consists of replacing an old and deteriorated 6″ waterline along 11th Street from University Avenue to Avenue G. The water line located in this segment was installed in the 1950s and is cast iron or ductile iron pipe. Several water line breaks have occurred in this segment in the past.
The project is now primarily funded through the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) under its Community Development Grant (CDBG) Program. Construction is scheduled to begin on November 7 and be completed in early March. It is expected to be completed during business hours and with the goal of only closing one lane of 11th street in small segments at a time to minimize disruption to traffic. Find a map of the project and lane closures on the City’s website.
The City of Huntsville asks that drivers stay alert to lane closures and plan alternate routes when possible. Please contact the Engineering Department at 936-294-5760 for more information.
