AUSTIN – Austin Water will begin work on the Exposition Blvd Water Improvements Project on Saturday, May 25, 2019. The project will replace aging water and wastewater lines on Exposition Blvd between Enfield Road and West 35th Street. Construction is expected to take about 1 year to complete.
Work will start with construction of the water main on Exposition Blvd. between Westover and West 35th Street. One lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction throughout the construction. However, motorists can expect to experience delays in this area and should use caution.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
The Exposition Blvd Water Project is part of the Renewing Austin Program, an ongoing program to replace and upgrade aging infrastructure. Water line breaks are well documented in the Exposition area. The project is necessary to increase reliability of service and avoid further expenditures to maintain water lines that have broken frequently. A portion of a wastewater line will also be improved in the area. Work will take place along Exposition Boulevard between Enfield Rd. and West 35th Street.
The project will replace approximately 900 linear feet of existing wastewater line and approximately 8,000 linear feet of existing water line, including making service connections and replacing old fire hydrants.
