Allandale Storm Drain Improvements Construction Update 10/25/11

Highlights

  • We will close RM 2222 at Bull Creek Road early Saturday morning (October 29) and reopen it before Monday morning rush hour traffic. The detours will be the same as the three previous closures.
  • White Horse Trail will be closed at Nasco this week, probably starting tomorrow. White Horse should be reopened on Friday or early next week.
  • There will be closures and blocked driveways on Nasco after we finish work at the White Horse Intersection, possibly as early as Friday. It will likely take about two weeks to install the storm drain pipe on Nasco.
  • We will continue installing water service lines on Bull Creek Road. This week we will be between White Rock and White Horse.
  • Bull Creek Road is closed north of RM 2222 and two driveways are blocked. We anticipate that the road will remained closed and the driveways blocked for at least two more weeks as we connect the box culverts.

Informal Meeting
Tony Krauss, the project manager, will be on site for questions most Tuesdays at 5:30 p.m. He will be at White Horse and Nasco today.

Allandale Tree Survival Guide

Angela Caras I have flown into Austin from the West Coast twice in the past few months. The first time, in July, I was saddened to see so much of what should have been productive farmland burnt brown by the drought. The second time, in mid-September, I was shocked by...

The October 2011 Allandale Neighbor

Front pageThe October Allandale Neighbor is being delivered. I received mine today and I hope you received yours as well. I am so pleased with the contributions neighbors submitted. I am always worried when we start the process that I won't have enough content to fill the 24 pages. But when it all comes in, I end up with too much. Many thanks to all of the folks who put the time and effort into writing an article. There is talent in this neighborhood.

The focus of this issue is coping with the drought. A big thank you to Angela Caras who talked to the tree experts and put together a piece on taking care of your trees during these dry times. We also have an article about a drought-hardy grass. St Augustine is not made for Austin summers. I am adding both articles to the website in case you would like to comment at the end of each article.
