Expect lane closures for the next six weeks as Austin Public Works resurfaces the street.
Austin Public Works will begin maintenance on Montopolis Drive from East Oltorf Street to Grove Boulevard on Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2022. The project is being managed by Public Works’ Street and Bridge Operations team and is expected to last six weeks, so long as weather permits.
The repairs consist of replacing failing pavement with new asphalt and limited concrete curb replacement. New pavement markings will follow the asphalt placement and allow for Austin residents' commutes on the busy road safer and more convenient.
Localized construction impacts include:
- Alternating Lane Closures: Montopolis Drive will remain accessible at all times in both directions. The street will operate with two lanes (one in each direction) throughout the project.
- Work Hours: Work hours will be 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. M-F. Lane closures will remain in effect for 24 hours and change only as work progresses. Detour signage for pedestrians is posted.
- Timeline: Project expected to last 6 weeks pending weather
Austin Public Works urges everyone traveling in the area to watch their speed and stay alert for construction workers and pedestrian traffic. To learn more about Austin's Road Resurfacing Programs, visit AustinTexas.Gov/StreetAndBridge or call 3-1-1.
