City of Hutto Begins Work on Voter-Approved Infrastructure Projects
Live Oak Street, FM 1660 improvements underway, other streets in design
HUTTO, Texas (Oct. 30, 2019) – The City of Hutto has broken ground on Phase 1 of the Old Town Road Improvement Projects approved by voters in November 2018 with the reconstruction of Live Oak and Taylor streets and improvements to FM 1660 North.
“Our crews are already on the ground doing the work and improvements our residents asked,” Hutto City Manager Odis Jones said. “Every street in Old Town will be touched in this project, whether it is to repair, replace or maintain, in addition to the well-known flooding and drainage issues in this area will be addressed as approved by Council in January.”
Currently Hutto Public Works crews are relocating water lines and placing storm sewer lines underground along Live Oak Street. The addition of storm sewer lines will remove open ditches as a form of drainage in the area.
The reconstruction of Live Oak, which will dramatically change the look of the street but stay within the current public easement, will include a 12’ driving lane in each direction, curbside parallel parking and continuous sidewalks along the length of Live Oak from City Hall to Park Street. Improvements along FM 1660 will include drainage work, intersection improvements and road maintenance.
While work is underway on Live Oak and FM 1660, engineers are designing other street and drainage improvement projects planned throughout Old Town.
