The intersection of Castell Avenue and San Antonio Street will be closed from Feb. 27 through March 10, part of New Braunfels’ Castell Avenue 24-Inch Water Line Project.

The water line project is designed to increase water transmission capacity and reliability by replacing aged infrastructure.

“These improvements are expected to reduce water main breaks, leading to fewer maintenance events and lowering long-term repair costs,” a New Braunfels Utilities press release stated.

The utilities contractor, D. Guerra Construction, will be installing water line infrastructure during the scheduled intersection and street closure. All work is expected to be completed as scheduled; however, vehicular traffic should expect barriers at the intersection and detour routes.

The water line project is expected to be completed in May.
