Elizabeth Avenue will remain closed from Torrey Street to Hinman Island Drive through the end of February, New Braunfels Utilities announced Dec. 22.

The work is part of the Castell Avenue 24-inch water line project. Installation of the water line portion along Zink Street will continue through mid-January, and the stretch of water line from the Union Pacific rail line down to Torrey is also slated to be completed at the end of February.





Spiess Construction is the contractor NBU hired to complete the construction.

NBU will continue to provide updates on the traffic closures on this and other capital improvement projects at www.nbutexas.com/current-construction-impacts-and-road-closures as well as on Twitter and Facebook.

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.
