City of Center and Drewery Construction workers have been making repairs on Monday, December 29, 2014 to the end of Riggs Street at the intersection with Shelbyville Street and separately to the end of Runnels Street at the intersection with Austin Street just off the Center square.
Chad Nehring, City Manager, explained the work is being done in these areas on valley gutters where rainwater historically has ponded since TxDOT did some work on these streets. The workers are attempted to remedy this ponding situation and are planning to pour concrete tomorrow on Tuesday, December 30, 2014.
Riggs Street will remain closed until sometime Tuesday, December 30, 2014 for gas line work before reopening. The street is expected to also be closed for several days on the following week.
