Road closures on Zink Street and Market Avenue are slated to conclude by the end of December.

The closure will allow New Braunfels Utilities crews to install water lines as part of the Castell Avenue 24-inch Water Line Project. NBU began construction on the Castell Avenue project in May.

Once complete, the project will provide an additional 24-inch transmission main needed to transport water from downtown New Braunfels to the county line storage tank and surrounding areas.

Zink Street from Seguin Avenue to Market Avenue, and Market Avenue from Zink Street to Musebach Street will be closed until Dec. 31.

The roads will remain open for area residents and businesses, and detour signs will guide traffic around closures, according to an NBU press release.


Portions of Castell Avenue between Nacogdoches Street and Elm Street, and from Elm Street to Faust Street will also remain closed until Dec. 13.

During the closure, NBU crews will work to remove and replace an 8-inch sewer line as part of the Castell Avenue 24-inch Water Line Project.

At least one side of the street will remain accessible to pedestrians throughout the construction process and detours will be clearly marked, according to NBU.
