We ask again that all residents please obey traffic control signage during the construction and to not go around closures.  Failure to do so can result in traffic accidents, pushing cars or pedestrians into work zones or into trenches.  Bypassing the traffic controls endangers fellow residents and work crews.  If disregard of the traffic barricades continues, it will be necessary to ask APD to monitor the area and issue tickets to violators.  Please avoid parking your car in the work zone, as this may cause delay to the progress on the project.  Finally, please stay clear of the work zones and do not cross into the work zones.  These safeguards are established for your protection and the protection of the construction crew.  Again, safety of the citizens of Austin is our main concern, so we respectfully ask for your cooperation.

Finally, your trashcan will be moved behind the curb on the opposite side of the street during construction in your area.  If you’d like to make sure that you receive your same waste receptacle back, please label the receptacle with your street address. Crews will return the receptacle to your address at the end of the day of pickup.

Once again, thank you for working to help keep the children away from the construction area and equipment.  Information on the Allandale Storm Drain Improvements can always be found at http://www.austintexas.gov/stormdrains
