Construction is set to begin Feb. 14 on FM 685 near Typhoon Texas, the city of Pflugerville announced in a Feb. 13 tweet. Pflugerville City Council awarded a nearly $1 million construction contract to Cox Construction at its Jan. 14 meeting for water park modifications and intersection improvements.

The infrastructure project would relocate the water park's entrance north and align with Town Center Drive, according to a Jan. 22 Pflugerville Community Development Corp. news release. The scope of the project also includes new signalization, deceleration lanes and sidewalks along FM 685, per the release.


Per the agreement, Cox Construction must complete the project within 150 calendar days following the start of construction. According to the release, PCDC Executive Director Amy Madison said the project is expected to be complete prior to the park's reopening in May.

The project will be done in two phases: Phase 1 will feature an inside southbound FM 685 lane closure through March 17, while Phase 2 will include a closure on the outside northbound FM 685 lane through May 19. City staff said residents should anticipate delays during weekdays between 9 a.m.-4 p.m., adding the left lane on southbound FM 685 near Town Center Drive will be closed.
