Traffic will be re-routed during the construction.  Please respect signage designating work

Many of these street sections are used as bus lanes and student drop off/pickup areas for
YISD campuses. To the extent possible, our contractor will be scheduled to avoid these
area during high traffic times.  However, the City asks that all drivers be extremely
conscious; be aware of children, other vehicles, and construction zone hazards.  School
zones regulations will be strictly enforced.

Once the contractor has completed the street work, vehicles will be free to park along the
right-of-way as usual.  We appreciate the patience and cooperation of our citizens as we
continue our annual street maintenance.

Questions should be directed to Michael Bennett, Director of Public Works at
361-293-6321.
