Kong Not Deterred By Texas Weather

Proceeding On Valley, Ostrom, Conner and South Seaman

Even though the unpredictable Texas weather has caused King Kong’s progress to slow somewhat, the beastly project continues moving ahead.

Slow progress is being made on West Valley towards Dixie Street with reports of the work only slightly behind schedule due to the wet, cold weather. The crews are taking advantage of the nice warmer weather periods between the sleet, snow and freezing temperatures, buy working extra hours when possible.

Additional crews continue with tie-ins on South Seaman and along North College, aka Hwy. 3101, and at the intersection of Marsh and Conner.

Demolition of the small standpipe (water tower) atop Park Hill is nearing completion with the removal of the concrete base. Work on the new tower should begin in early March and continue through the end of the year.

Please remember when travelling in these ‘construction’ areas to be on the alert and watch for crew members as well as heavy equipment.

Residents and businesses in the areas are also reminded water service interruptions may be necessary at times during the work.
