**LEON CREEK TRAIL CLOSED FOR UTILITY RELOCATIONS - RESCHEDULED**
The gas main installation and storm drain tie-ins in Leon Creek which were previously scheduled have not occurred yet due to the rain and wet conditions. The current schedule now shows this work to occur Tuesday & Wednesday, May 3rd and May 4th. During this time the Leon Creek Trail will be closed from 9:00am to 3:00pm. Some weather reports, however, are projecting rain for next week, so this utility work may need to be rescheduled once more.
**BRIDGE BEAMS ON NORTHSIDE OF LEON CREEK SET FOR THURSDAY THRU SATURDAY - MAY 5th THRU MAY 7th - TENTATIVE**
The planned setting of the bridge beams for the Leon Creek bridge will not occur this weekend due to the forecasted rain and wet conditions. We are rescheduling the beam setting for Thursday May 5th thru Saturday May 7th. Starting Wednesday May 4th the bridge beams will be stored on Hausman between Roadrunner Way and Leon Creek to be ready for placement. Flaggers will be used to help direct traffic during these operations, but some delays are expected. Please be aware that rain next week may cause us to have to reschedule the beam setting again.
**PLEASE NOTE: ALL WORK IS SUBJECT TO FAVORABLE WEATHER CONDITIONS**
WORK PLAN BY SECTION OF ROADWAY

The project will also construct a 10’ concrete hike and bike trail on the south side of the roadway which will connect to the Leon Creek Greenway hike and bike trails.

Q. How will this project make turning left from Woller Rd onto Hausman easier?
A. There will be a 14' grassy median installed on the west side of the intersection. Vehicles will be able to pull out alongside the nose of the median to wait for a gap in westbound Hausman traffic.
Q. Will the City need to buy land from property owners for the project?
A. Yes, the City will need to acquire some property from property owners for the project. Property owners who will be affected have already been contacted. In most cases, the property the City needs to acquire are strips of land along Hausman for the widening of the roadway.
Q. Will detour routes and schedules be provided in advance to the public?
A. Yes. The website will have up-to-date information on upcoming closures and detours. In addition, an email notice will be provided to those who sign up for project email blasts. That being said, most of the construction will be able to happen while maintaining two-way traffic (one lane in each direction) on Hausman.
Q. How do I sign up for those email blasts?
A. You can sign up by entering your email address at the bottom of this webpage. Your email will not be used for any other purpose than Hausman Road updates. Once the project is finished, no other emails will be sent out. You can also unsubscribe at any time.
