City: Crockett closure on square to last through March


Beginning Monday, Jan. 23, Crockett Street from Pearl Street to Bridge Street on the Granbury Square will be closed to traffic.

The closure, expected to continue through the end of March, will allow for the completion of two major projects.

Assistant City Manager Rick Crownover said that contractors will relocate an old wastewater main that is under Crockett Street.

“Some of these lines pre-date the oldest sets of plans available,” he said. “The goal is to not only make the wastewater system more reliable, but also increase its capacity in the area.”

Contractors will have to be particularly cautious because of different types of utilities in the area, according to the city.

After the wastewater upgrade has been completed, work will be done to rebuild the street between Pearl and Bridge, Crownover stated.

All sidewalks and crosswalks will be open throughout the project, according to city officials. Motorists are asked to use alternate routes.

“We scheduled these projects to have minimal impact on businesses and tourists in the area,” Crownover said. “Thanks in advance to everyone for their patience.”
