Two Grapevine water towers are getting a face-lift.
In March 2018, Grapevine City Council approved a contract for work on two water towers: one at 211 W. Texas St., behind Grapevine City Hall, and the other at 224 Peach St. The project cost for each tower is $566,450 and $876,000, respectively.
Construction on the two water towers began in late November after the cell equipment was removed from the structures and placed on temporary poles by the cell providers, Grapevine Public Works Director Bryan Beck said in an email.
“Cities typically repaint and restore their towers every 10-15 years to keep them in good condition,” Beck said in his email.
Crews are concurrently working on both water towers, with the tower at 224 Peach St. being the larger of the two projects since it holds more water, Beck said. It will be the first water tower to be completed. Work on both towers should be finished in August.
In the meantime, parking behind City Hall will be more limited as crews continue to work.
