On Tuesday, January 22, construction will begin on the Oxbow Trails Neighborhood Drainage Improvements Project.
Patin Construction will be performing survey work and installation of erosion and sediment controls within the existing earthen drainage channel located between Oxbow Trail and Remuda Trail.
During the week of January 13, 2019, the contractor has been staging traffic control devices in the right-of-way to prepare for planned detours.
The first phase of project construction will include removal of an existing drainage culvert within Remuda Trail to be replaced by a new reinforced concrete box culvert.
Remuda Trail will be closed to all through traffic just north of RM 967 during the first phase of the construction project. The closure begins on January 22. Detour signs will be up in the area. However, access will be allowed to residential properties along Remuda Trail south of the culvert for the duration of the construction project.
The contractor will be allowed to work between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. and will be required to secure the construction zone overnight. Additionally, the contractor will have a traffic control plan in force at all times during work within the public right-of-way.
The Remuda Trail culvert phase of project is expected to be finished in early March 2019. The improvements are being made as part of Bond Proposition 4.
