On Tuesday, the Hays County Commissioners Court approved the execution of a Standard Utility Agreement for the project at FM 2001 West from SH 21 to White Wing Trail Safety Improvements.
The SUA is between Hays County and Enterprise Texas Pipeline LLC as part of the 2016 Road Bond Program.
The agreement outlines a scope of work and estimated $1,460,800 fee to reroute approximately 1,424 ft of 6-inch gas transmission Line 9034 – New Braunfels to Turnersville Road Station pipeline on a new pipeline easement.
According to officials, it is impacted by the ROW taking and construction of new road and drainage features along FM 2001 requiring it to be moved.
The SUA will include the extension of the existing 12” casing approximately 79 feet near Buda, Texas, to accommodate any proposed future expansions.
This pipeline Work also includes line replacement by HDD on the 2-inch Line 9034A and installation of one pipeline protection slab to accommodate the lowering of natural grade and new pavement structure installation/regrading where the line will no longer comply with TAC.
Commissioner Mark Jones said briefly the agreement would see the pipeline moved out of the construction zone relating to the expansion of FM 2001.
The commissioners approved the item unanimously.
