AUSTIN, TX – Southbound West Gate Blvd. between William Cannon Dr. and Fentonridge Dr. will be closed beginning October 1, 2018, for replacement of sections of the water main. Northbound West Gate Blvd will be converted to a two-way street with one southbound and one northbound lane.
Austin Water will replace sections of the 48-inch water main along West Gate Blvd south of William Cannon Dr. Austin Water has located 3 sections of the water main, approximately 100 feet total, that are damaged. These sections will be replaced to prevent a major water main break in the future.
The project is expected to take about 4 weeks to complete. Any concerns during construction should be reported to Austin Water Dispatch at 512-972-1000.
A public meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 26, 6:30-7:30 p.m. at the conference room at Westgate Lanes to discuss this project. In addition, Austin Transportation will discuss initial plans for long-term mobility and safety improvements along West Gate Boulevard. The meeting is an open house, come-and-go format.
