Some More Construction Woes On 34th Avenue To Be Finished Next Week
Complaining about construction is one of our favorite hobbies in Amarillo. It seems like there is constantly a new detour or project popping up somewhere in the city. This week, we got an update on 34th.
Why Was There A Detour On 34th In Amarillo This Week?
There was a temporary detour put in place while crews worked on repairing a water main break. The detour was taking traffic from Travis Street to Ong Street.
Now for some good news.
The Water Main Repair Should Be Finished Today
The first part of this project was repairing a water main break. According to a press release from the City of Amarillo, they're expecting that part of the process to be finished today (Jan 7).
Now for the somewhat bad news.
They Will Still Be Working On That Area Into Next Week
According to the press release, the construction in that area will continue into next week. That means if you need to be on that stretch of 34th, you still have a few days of needing to find another way around or take the detour.
The reason why is that they will be paving the road, and it is expected that the paving will be done by Wednesday, Jan 12.
It could be worse. At least we have a good timeline of when the project will be finished, and it doesn't look like it's going to take that long.
Hopefully we get water back in McDonald Lake soon, and the nightmare on Western fades into distant memory.
