A portion of Lakeview Boulevard and Drawbridge Trail will be closed beginning January 20 for two maintenance projects.

The section of Lakeview Blvd. from Klingemann St. to American Blvd. will be closed for one month while an NBU wastewater pipe is installed. The pipe will be connected to the new NBU Gruene Water Reclamation Facility and will allow the current Blieders Creek Lift Station to be taken offline in the future.


A detour will be put into place and portions of Torrey St., Lakeview Blvd. and other affected roads will be repaved once the work is completed. For more information, contact Justin Pena at 830-613-5259.

Drawbridge Trail, which connects County Line Road and Duke Bend, will also be closed beginning January 20 for two weeks as a sanitary sewer line is drilled beneath County Line Road.

The project is part of NBU’s South Kuehler Sanitary Sewer Project and a detour will be put into place along Dragon Trail, Chapel Bend and Dove Crossing Drive. For more information, contact Gregory Schwerdtfeger at 830-221-4035.
