Road closures expected in Georgetown next week


Highlights

Trucks carrying 120 concrete beams for two bridges over San Gabriel River will delay traffic

Areas affected are intersection of Texas 29 and University plus Leander Road at Interstate 35

Drivers in Georgetown can expect brief closures on two roads next week because of bridge beams being delivered to a bridge site in the southwest part of the city.

Convoys of six trucks will be delivering 120 steel-reinforced concrete beams March 20-24 for two bridges that are part of the Southwest Bypass Project, according to a press release from the city of Georgetown. The bridges will span the South San Gabriel River and an unnamed tributary.

The deliveries will lead to brief road closures on Texas 29 at University Avenue and on Leander Road at Interstate 35, the press release said. Traffic on Interstate 35 is not expected to be affected.

The closures will be about five minutes long from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 20-22 on Texas 29 at University Avenue, according to the city press release. After the trucks clear the intersection they will travel west on University Avenue and then turn south on D.B. Wood Road to reach the bridge site, the press release said.

Leander Road at Interstate 35 will be closed for brief periods from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 23-24. After the trucks carrying the beams pass through this intersection they will travel west on Leander Road and turn north at the Southwest Bypass right-of-way, which is about 600 feet west of Riverview Drive, the press release said.

The Southwest Bypass project involves extending Leander Road to Texas 29. Construction is supposed to be complete by the end of 2018 but the contractor is ahead of schedule, according to the press release.
