We got an update today from the City of Austin regarding the timing on the work on Far West Boulevard, which updates the message from August 25th. Here is their message:
The Austin Water project to provide improved water pressure to residents and area fire hydrants in the Northwest Hills area is taking longer than expected. Excessive rain and unforeseen issues underground have slowed work on the project.
Utility work in the 4000 block of Far West Boulevard is now projected to be complete by November 1.
Austin Water wants to ensure our customers that we are doing the best job possible to have the greatest benefit to our customers. This project is part of a strategic initiative to replace and upgrade Austin Water’s distribution system to meet the needs of a rapidly growing city. Austin Water will regularly update area residents on the progress of the project.
