City Hosting Water Distribution Improvement Meeting

"Residents are invited to attend a meeting Thursday, July 13 at 6 p.m. to learn more about an upcoming water distribution improvement project. The meeting, hosted by the City of Amarillo’s Capital Projects & Development Engineering (CPDE) division, is open to the public and will take place at the Downtown Amarillo Public Library, 413 S.E. 4th Ave.

Amarillo City Council awarded the $1,621,258 project to Amarillo Utility Contractors, Inc. who will replace the two-inch water main in the area along Tyler Street between S.W. 3rd and S.W. 4th avenues and in the Southlawn neighborhood between Washington and Bowie streets and I-27 and S.W. 46th Avenue. The project is expected to begin this month.

City staff will be on hand at the meeting to answer questions and residents are encouraged to attend to gain more information about the project. The contract includes provisions to help minimize the impact to the neighborhood traffic. However, residents in this area may want to find alternate routes at various times throughout the project. Motorists are advised to use extreme caution and anticipate delays.

The City and its contractor would like to thank residents and motorists in advance for their patience and understanding. For more information or questions concerning this project, please call CPDE at (806) 378-9334."
