Second Street Improvements Public Meeting June 16

Jun 8, 2015

The City of Georgetown will hold a public meeting on Tuesday, June 16 to provide project details for Second Street rehabilitation and utility improvements. The meeting will be at 6 p.m. at the office of KPA Engineers at 1008 S. Main Street.

The proposed improvements include the reconstruction of Second Street from Austin Avenue to S. College Street. Work will include a new asphalt roadway with curbs, drainage inlets, and storm drains, as well as a sidewalk with pedestrian ramps on the south side of Second Street. The project also includes a new 8-inch water line to span the length of the project. Improvements will be constructed within the existing right-of-way for Second Street.

The nine-month project is expected to begin in early July. Start and completion dates depend on weather conditions.

Second Street will be closed to through-traffic during the duration of the project. Residents on Second Street will have local access.

The City of Georgetown opened bids for this project on May 28. Joe Bland Construction of Austin was awarded the bid to construct on the project, based on cost. Representatives from Joe Bland Construction will be in attendance at this meeting as well.
