The large Public Works project that started in Burleson Heights in 2010 is almost over. Though our streets have been quiet again for months, the City of Austin has one last phase to complete before it can call the project done.
One last section of storm drain will be installed at the north end of Ware Road, allowing water that’s collected in the new storm sewer system to drain directly into Country Club Creek. Weather permitting, workers will start installing 78 feet of pipe on Tuesday. Work should be completed on Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving.
The city has been working for more than a year to obtain an easement between Ware and the creek. That property was owned by the company that owns Douglas Landing apartments, on the opposite side of the creek.
For more information about the storm drain and the creek stabilization project, see the blog posts from Aug. 10, 2011.
