FROM SUBMITTED REPORTS
This in from Hays County spokesperson Laureen Chernow:
Hays County and the Texas Department of Transportation invite all interested residents to attend a meeting Monday, June 6, to learn more about the proposed permanent replacement bridge over the Blanco River on Post Road.
The crossing, which was obliterated by the Memorial Weekend flood last year, provides an alternate route between San Marcos and Kyle and is currently served by a one-lane temporary bridge constructed from railway flat cars.
“Construction of the permanent bridge requires the temporary bridge to be removed and a detour will be necessary for travelers,” Precinct 4 Commissioner Ray Whisenant said. “The meeting is an opportunity for residents to become familiar with the detour as well as the design of the new bridge.”
TxDOT, which is in charge of the bridge construction, will have staff and exhibits available during the open-house style meeting at the Kyle First Baptist Church Fellowship Hall, 400 West Center Street, from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, June 6.
