Busted Sewer Line Spells Bad News For Amarillo Civic Center
A press release issued by the City of Amarillo earlier this afternoon spelled out the bad news. A busted sewer line is going to be causing some inconvenience when you head to the Amarillo Civic Center.
What Happened At The Civic Center
The press release refers to it as a failure of an original cast iron sewer main line. This failure has led to the closure of certain sections of the Amarillo Civic Center.
Namely, the sections on the northeast side of the Civic Center.
While that's bad enough on its own, what we're all concerned with is what it means for events. There's some good news in all of this.
Events At The Amarillo Civic Center Are Not Cancelled
The press release states that all scheduled events will go on as planned. Yes, that includes performances of The Nutcracker.
That's the good news. The bad news isn't that bad, just a minor inconvenience.
Restrooms Will Be Closed
The press release does say that restrooms will be closed. So, if you're attending a Wranglers game, Amarillo College Graduation, The Nutcracker; you'll need to "go" before you go, or use a different restroom.
Might want to lay off those brews at the Wranglers game. Maybe pace yourself.
A Whole Lot Of Digging Going On
The sewer line is going to have to be removed and replaced, according to the press release. That includes the digging of an 8-foot-deep open trench. It will go across the parking lot on the east side.
If you're going to be traveling in that area, know that northbound and southbound traffic will be blocked while the repairs are happening.
