Additional Road Closures Scheduled
The City of Huntsville’s Town Creek Drainage Project is progressing and Phase II is set to begin. Work in the affected areas is likely to produce delays and detours. Right now, this is occurring on 7th Street between Old Madisonville Road and Avenue M.
On or about October 10, 2016, work will begin at the 10th Street intersection between Avenue N and Avenue O. This is scheduled to last about eight weeks. Following the work at 7th Street and 10th Street, it is anticipated that progress will begin in early November at Avenue N and 11th Street, in the area of First National Bank. This portion of the work will be constructed during the daytime, from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Drivers are urged to plan alternate routes and provide adequate time to reach their destinations in light of the changes in traffic patterns. Detour information will be distributed on the City Website and Facebook page.
In an effort to reduce the impact to local businesses, the next phase of construction is anticipated to be completed primarily during the nighttime ours of 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. Limited construction activities may be required during daytime hours. If required, these activities will be conducted in a manner to limit disruption as much as possible. This part of the project will include replacing the underground structures along 13th Street between Avenue M and Sam Houston Avenue and then progress through Sam Houston Avenue, the Walker County Annex parking lot, across University Avenue, and through the Midway Plaza parking lot, ending at the intersection of 14th Street and Avenue J.
In November 2015, the City entered into a contract with Garney Construction to provide Construction Manager at Risk services. Phase I included the work done on the SHSU intramural fields and Bearkat Boulevard and is in the final stages of completion.
For questions, concerns, or more information, please contact Garney at their local address, 1402 Sam Houston Avenue, Suite B, Huntsville, Texas, 77340, or call 936-291-5428.
