Red River Reconstruction Begins Monday, October 14

Post Date:10/10/2019 8:43 AM

The reconstruction of Red River Street between Main and Laurent streets will begin Monday, Oct. 14.

The $3.29 million project includes the replacement of water and sanitary sewer lines, storm sewer modifications, selected curb and gutter replacement, and reconstruction of the street with a hot-mix surface asphalt surface.

Beginning Monday morning, traffic will be restricted to one lane, east-bound between Navarro and Laurent Streets. All homes and businesses along Red River Street still will be accessible during the construction period. Periodically, intersecting streets may be closed to allow for the utility and roadway construction.

Motorists should anticipate traffic delays in the area and exercise greater caution as construction workers will be present.

The contractor on the project is Brannan Paving Co., Ltd of Victoria, and the project is expected to be completed Spring 2021. 

For more information about the reconstruction project, contact the City of Victoria Engineering Department at 361-485-3340.
