New 6” water mains are being installed from Green Street to Main Street along the buildings on the north side of Cameron Avenue (Highway 79). Currently the first section from Green to Ackerman is complete and the properties on this block will be connected to the new line shortly.
Beginning 9/3/21, the plan is to cross Ackerman utilizing an open trench to install an encased 6” water line. Once completed, the final section of the downtown main will be installed from Ackerman to Main. All connections from Green to Main should be completed by the middle of September. Following that will be the removal of the 100+ year old water line from the TxDot right-of-way.
Our goal is to give the north side of Cameron Ave. from Green to Scarborough back to the TxDOT contractor by October 8th.
