City of Buda Road/Lane Closures

MAIN STREET IMPROVEMENT PROJECT
(Between Cabela's Drive and Railroad Street)

On Monday, July 22, 2019, a notice to proceed with construction will be issued for the Main Street Improvement Project between Cabela’s Drive and Railroad Street. The project is being done in three phases, with the first phase beginning on the south lanes of Main Street near Railroad Street. This includes the installation of a traffic light at E. Loop St./Sequoyah near the Municipal Complex. Sequoyah Street will be impacted during the first phase of construction. Drivers will be allowed to turn onto Sequoyah from Main Street, but Sequoyah going northbound to Main will be closed for 3 to 4 weeks. Therefore, citizens will not be able to turn onto Main from Sequoyah. The Sequoyah Street closure will happen in the coming weeks and the City will post information in advance of the closure. Phase 2 of the project concentrates on the north lanes of Main Street (between Railroad Street and Cabela’s Drive) and Phase 3 (Railroad Road and Cabela’s Drive) focuses on the middle lanes.

The general scope of the project includes:

· Widening of the Bradfield Drive/Main Street Intersection and extension of the 5 lane section to the west of Santa Cruz Catholic church

· Signal Modification at Bradfield Drive and Main Street to accommodate additional lanes

· Bradfield Park cross culvert extension/modification

· Extension of sidewalk along Main Street and improved accessibility to Bradfield Park

· Select areas for pavement base repair

· Pavement overlay and restriping

***THIS PROJECT IS NOT ASSOCIATED WITH THE MAIN STREET AND 967 PROJECT***

OLD GOFORTH ROAD CLOSURE

June 10, 2019 — Due to Old Goforth Road construction, the intersection of Green Meadows Lane and Old Goforth will be closed starting June 13 to permit the reconstruction of the intersection. The intersection at Tom Green School Road/Calomel Trail and Old Goforth will also be closed at this time. This is being done to allow the contractor to complete as much work as possible during the summer break to minimize disruptions at the beginning of school. The construction will last approximately through August.

Meanwhile, both lanes of Old Goforth Road remain closed between FM 2001 and Tom Green School Road. The southbound lane of Old Goforth is open between Tom Green School Road and Hillside Terrace. Northbound Old Goforth is closed between FM 2001 and Hillside Terrace. The closures will last through approximately August. The contractor is anticipating to have the road reopened by the time school starts in August, but the overall project will not be finished until October. The road improvement project is part of the bond package passed in 2014.

The general scope of work for this project includes:

· Dedicated left and right turn lanes at Tom Green Elementary

· Intersection safety improvements at FM 2001

· Increase pedestrian connectivity between subdivisions and school

· Aesthetic enhancements
