Del Curto Storm Drain Improvements Project
At the public meeting on January 23, we were asked how proposed improvements at the intersection of Bluebonnet Lane and South Lamar Blvd. would affect our storm drain project. We promised to look into this and now have some more information to share with you.
The improvements to that particular intersection are included in the proposed South Lamar Corridor Construction Plan. The plan was released on February 7 and will need to be approved by the Austin City Council.
Among other things, the South Lamar plan calls for turn lane modifications at Bluebonnet Lane and South Lamar Blvd. The plan also calls for installation of a roundabout at Bluebonnet Lane and Del Curto. Both of these locations overlap with our storm drain project.
The South Lamar plan also includes drainage improvements at the Bluebonnet intersection. These drainage improvements will be connected to the new storm drain system that we are installing.
We have talked to the South Lamar corridor team about our project, and we will continue to coordinate with them.
