Construction Of New Bridge Will Close Part of West Avenue


Beginning on Monday, West Avenue between Nakoma and North Loop Road will closed for the construction of a bridge.

The new bridge at the Salado Creek Crossing is part of the West Avenue Low Water Crossing project — a 2012-2017 Bond Program project. It will improve drainage across West Avenue, north of Nakoma. Other improvements include new utility lines for water, sewer, gas and telecommunications.

Construction is expected to keep the road closed for about six months. The project is scheduled to be completed by April 2017.
