The City of Georgetown will host a final open house to present proposed improvements to Austin Avenue from Second to Morrow streets from 4-7 p.m. March 26 at Georgetown City Hall.
This open house will give the public the opportunity to visit with project team members, review design schematics and a rendering, and give input on the Austin Avenue plans, a news release said.
The proposed improvements for Austin Avenue include rehabilitating the existing bridges and maintaining the railings, constructing a new pedestrian bridge to the east, and constructing sidewalks on the east and west sides of the bridge at the San Gabriel Village Boulevard and Second Street intersections, the release said. A 10-foot sidewalk will be constructed on the east side of Austin Avenue, and a 6-foot sidewalk will be constructed on the west side of Austin Avenue.
The public may submit comments regarding the proposed improvements in writing by April 12. Comments can be mailed to the Austin Avenue Bridges Project at P.O. Box 409, Georgetown, TX 78627, or emailed to [email protected].
The city has been studying and planning for potential improvements to Austin Avenue since 2016. For more information on the project, visit http://austinave.georgetown.org.
