In recent months, motorists who frequent Paige Road between North and South Colony boulevards may have noticed a variety of lane closures up and down the thoroughfare.
The work near Yager Drive, just north of Morningside Elementary, was for a recently-completed pedestrian hybrid beacon that will facilitate safer crossing of Paige.
The rest of the closures, however, are where contractors are working on the Austin Ranch Force Main project. When Paige Road was reconstructed in 2008, the city installed a new sewer line that will eventually be tied into existing lines serving those portions of the city south of SH 121, where development has grown significantly in recent years.
Crews have been inspecting the line and installing air-release valves in preparation for future phases of the project. Motorists should expect periodic lane closures to continue along Paige from South Colony to Worley as part of that project.
As always, please drive safe!
