Weather in Shallowater

10th Street Reconstruction and Drainage Project Updated Schedule

Due to the weather delay, it was agreed, for the convenience of the residents of 10th Street that construction will begin on the 700 feet of 10th Street closest to Avenue Q on Monday, September 14, 2020.  The city will also be improving the drainage along Avenue Q and the alleys from 10th Street to 7th Street.  The anticipated schedule for the street work is through the end of September. 

There will be no through traffic on 10th Street.  Residents will have access to their homes, but will need to enter and leave on Avenue N instead of Avenue Q.  There will be through traffic both directions on Avenue Q, but it will be slowed down.

Bus traffic will need to be diverted to 9th Street.  When the construction begins on the approaches traffic will be limited to one lane on 7th, 9th, and 10th Streets.

The city will be coordinating garbage pick up with South Plains Waste Services to ensure minimal disruption of services. 

Planned Phasing Schedule:

September 9/14-9/16   –  Mix 10th Street and proof roll subgrade – start demo of 1st half of 9th and 7th Street approaches .
