Town Creek Drainage Project

The City of Huntsville’s Town Creek Drainage Project Phase II is progressing and work in the affected areas is likely to produce delays and detours.

Avenue N closure between 10th and 11th Streets
The City of Huntsville’s Town Creek Drainage Project Phase II is adding a work area on Avenue N between 10th and 11th Streets. The closure began November 29, 2016 and will continue into early 2017.

Drivers will still have access to the Smither, Martin, Henderson, and Blazek Law Offices. The U.S. Post Office and the Huntsville Item will remain accessible from their 10th Street entrances. 

This portion of the work will be constructed during the daytime, from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Drivers are urged to plan alternate routes and provide adequate time to reach their destinations in light of the changes in traffic patterns. Attached is a detour map for the road closures, this map will also be available on the City's social media pages and available to download at http://tx-huntsville.civicplus.com/DocumentCenter/View/7740.

Work is continuing at the 10th Street intersection between Avenue N and Avenue O and is scheduled to be closed through the end of the year. A detour map for that area is available at http://tx-huntsville.civicplus.com/DocumentCenter/View/7705.

In November 2015, the City entered into a contract with Garney Construction to provide Construction Manager at Risk services. Phase I included the work done on the SHSU intramural fields and Bearkat Boulevard and is in the final stages of completion.

Garney Construction vows to give its best efforts to construct this project with as little impact as possible to the City of Huntsville and its citizens. For questions, concerns, or more information, please contact Garney at their local address, 1402 Sam Houston Avenue, Suite B, Huntsville, Texas, 77340, or call 936-291-5428.

Town Creek Donut Drop! 

Detours, delays, and donuts – oh, my! Projects around 7th and 10th Streets, including the Town Creek Drainage Project, will necessitate taking a little more time and perhaps some different routes around the area. City Staff made things a little sweeter near Sam Houston Elementary, with the City’s first Donut Drop – take a look!

Donut be sad if you missed this drop! There will be more along the construction routes. Thank you for your patience during construction!
