City Schedules Public Meeting on Storm Sewer Project

"The community is invited to attend a meeting Thursday, Aug. 3 at 6 p.m. to learn more about the upcoming Arden Road storm sewer installation project. The City of Amarillo’s Capital Projects & Development Engineering (CPDE) division will host the meeting which will take place at the Southwest Amarillo Public Library, 6801 S.W. 45th Ave.

Amarillo City Council awarded the $2,417,171.41 to Williams Ditching, LLC who will install various sizes of storm sewer piping to better serve the surrounding area. The project is expected to begin in August 2017. The contract with Williams Ditching 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.

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 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."
