Paving beginning on 45th Street to expedite project

45th Paving Beginning-2

Contractors working on the 45th Street project will begin paving the east side of 45th Street beginning at Broadway and working toward Avenue M to expedite the project.

To date, the contractor has completed the installation of new water lines and sanitary sewer lines. They are working on the installation of an expanded underground storm sewer system, which will improve drainage along the corridor. We are trying to expedite the process by beginning pavement this month. 

For the next approximately 30 days,  we will have intersections at Avenue K, Avenue L and Avenue M closed for paving. 

We will open the newly paved road to traffic at the earliest possible time.

The City of Galveston is closely monitoring work on this corridor and working with the contractor to ensure the timeliest completion possible.

The extended timeline is the result of the installation of a drainage system, which did not previously exist in this roadway. Galveston is an old city and it’s not uncommon to have unexpected challenges during construction projects. The underground drainage component was added after the start of the project.

We apologize for any inconvenience these closures cause. Thank you for your patience.
