The Austin City Council approved a bid from Elcor Construction totaling $1,171,227 for sanitary sewer construction work in the Turtle Creek 2 neighborhood on Oakland Avenue West at their regularly scheduled meeting held last week via teleconference due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  KAUS spoke with Austin Mayor Tom Stiehm during the “Meet the Mayor” segment on “Wright Here, Right Now” and he was asked if the city would be moving forward as scheduled with street reconstruction and sanitary sewer projects because of the coronavirus outbreak…

The work will involve constructing a sanitary sewer collection system to service 40 homes with a combination of a gravity and low-pressure system. It also includes construction of a lift station at Oakland Avenue West and 40th Street. Funding is contingent on the completion of a Point Source Implementation Grant along with funds from the Wastewater Treatment Plant.  Mayor Stiehm also talked about the approval of a bid from Hansen Hauling and Excavating, Inc. totaling $215,100 for the Turtle Creek Trail construction project, which will be a pedestrian/bike trail that will run from the intersection of 4th Street and 16th Avenue Southwest along Turtle Creek to Bustad Park…

The next regularly scheduled meeting for the Austin City Council will be held on Monday, April 20th at 5:30 p.m.
