From the City of Austin Public Works Department:
Beginning Sunday, July 31, the City’s contractor will move work to the north side of the Eighth and Colorado Street intersection. Eighth Street will be reduced to one westbound lane. Colorado Street will also be reduced to one southbound lane from Eighth Street to Tenth Street. These lane closures are necessary for the installation of new storm drain, water and wastewater lines, full depth street reconstruction, wider sidewalks, and curb and gutter. Once complete, the City’s contractor will continue working north to Tenth Street. This portion of work is expected to be complete in October 2016. At that time, the City’s contractor is expected to move to the west side of Colorado Street, beginning in November 2016.
Motorists are asked to use caution and be extra alert in the work zone during this time.
The City will provide updates to inform the public of any additional closures or upcoming changes to traffic controls related to this project. More information about this project can be found on the City of Austin Public Works website.
