URGENT NOTICE: Water to be Shut Down at Intersection of Travis, Rucker, Wednesday

 Granbury, Texas – The City of Granbury Public Works Department will begin shutting down and cutting the water supply mains at the intersection of North Travis and Rucker Streets, Wednesday, as part of the utility upgrades in that area.

“Utility crews will start the replacement work early in the morning, which will tie in new valves and a section of main at Rucker and Travis,” said Water Superintendent Paul Gast.  “This shut down is unavoidable and water supplies for the affected areas should only be off for a few hours, but residents are being advised to plan for the lack of water.”

The attached photo shows the area that is included in the shutdown.  Gast said his crews have tried to speak to most of the residents in the area but wanted to remind people that there will be NO WATER SERVICE at this location during the shutdown. This service interruption will also affect the gymnasium at 602 Thorpe Spring Road and water for irrigation at the parks.

For more information please contact Granbury Public Information Officer Alex Southern at 817-573-6764 or at asouthern@granbury.org. 

TRAFFIC WARNING: Intersection of N. Travis, Rucker Streets to be Closed for Utility Upgrades

Granbury, Texas – The City of Granbury Public Works Department will begin utility work at the intersection of N. Travis & Rucker Streets, Thursday, which will close the intersection through Friday, August 28.

“The entire intersection will be out of service during this time due to the realignment of critical valves, piping and other (accessories) associated with several utilities in this area,” said Public Works Director Rick Crownover. “We had planned this project for earlier in the summer, but everything has shifted due to COVID-19.”

The work will include pavement removal in the intersection, replacing water and wastewater piping and valves, and researching the condition of the intersection’s other utilities. After the underground work is completed, the intersection will be repaved.

Drivers and neighborhood residents should be aware that Rucker St. will be closed from N. Houston St. to N. Thrash St., and N. Travis St. will be closed from Cogdell St. to Mill St. There will be no traffic allowed through the area during construction. Work is scheduled to be completed on Friday, Aug. 28, weather permitting.

For more information please contact Granbury Public Information Officer Alex Southern at 817-573-6764 or at asouthern@granbury.org
