The Most Current Facts About Traffic


Should you be a person who sometimes finds themselves driving themselves up and down 19th Avenue in the Sunset District, it is time to get to know your local side streets. The jackhammers, trucks, and terrific traffic delays will be descending on 19th Avenue for the next 27 months , according to the Examiner, as something the DPW is calling the 19th Avenue Combined City Project will reduce stretches of 19th Avenue from three-lane traffic to two. 19th Avenue will still remain open throughout the long affair, but for the next two months, you’ll probably want to avoid the six blocks of 19th Avenue between Golden Gate Park and Noriega Street. That’s just the first of many affected areas in the “extensive” overhaul of street and underground infrastructure, which the Examiner says includes “replacement of water and sewer mains, street base repairs, installation of new ADA-compliant curb ramps, construction of bulbs to shorten the walking distance required to cross the street, concrete bus pads, traffic signal improvements and sidewalk widening at bus stops.” Crews actually started this week (though they have today off), but things get serious on Monday when they begin saw-cutting roadway on the southbound lanes on the block click over here between Lincoln Way and Irving Street, expected to last until mid-November. The block between Judah and Kirkham Streets is up next (expected to be finished in early January), then Kirkham to Lawton Street for much of the rest of January. The project will keep removing a lane from a particular block for, well, years, hence the projected traffic nightmares. Hoodline adds this is also part of Muni’s 28 19th Avenue Rapid Project that includes some sidewalk widening and bus stop consolidation that hopes to (eventually) make the 28-line bus experience smoother. They’ve already started changing locations on stops, and you can expect to see much more of that in the future. 19th Avenue is of course a part of California’s famed State Route 1, which means Caltrans has their hands in on this as well.


She added that there is no timeline right now as to when the purchase could be made. Kempner has a water line that runs through the area from its water treatment plant, according to Coberley. Attempts to call the city of Georgetown water department were not returned by deadline on Monday. Kempner Water Supply has a water treatment plant on Stillhouse Hollow Lake. Georgetown took over the water rights previously owned by the Chisholm Trail water district around October 2019, and the rights included parts of southern Bell County, northern Williamson County and part of Burnet County. The takeover was the first time in Texas that a city took over a special utility district outside its jurisdiction. Chisholm Trail’s board, dominated by Georgetown area residents, voted Sept. 30, 2019, to dissolve itself after years of steps taken to acquire water rights and sell assets. The potential deal comes at a time when one of Georgetown’s main water sources is being flagged for triggering a drought-like condition. On Monday, the Brazos River Authority informed customers accessing water from Lake Georgetown that a “Stage 1 Drought Watch” has been declared for their area.
