Closures to Affect Downtown Streets
Work is Part of RSMH Project

SEGUIN, Texas – The City of Seguin advises residents of downtown street closures that begin Friday, August 1. The work is part of the ongoing River/San Marcos/Heideke Street project.

The following portions of streets will be closed as utility work is underway:
• North Milam Street between Gonzales and Walnut
• East Mountain Street between River and San Marcos
• North Bauer Street between Court and Mountain

Depending on unforeseen conditions such as weather or changes in utility installation, the closures are anticipated to last 4-6 weeks. Detour signs will be in place and affected residents have been notified.

About the RSMH Project
The River San Marcos Heideke Project includes utility, storm drainage, water, electric and sewer upgrades. The streets will also be reconstructed and sidewalks added. The improvements will alleviate current concerns with storm water drainage, sewer issues and water pressure. Streets included in the entire project include Milam between and Nolte, San Marcos between Kingsbury and Court, River between College and Mountain, Mountain between River and Gravel, Bauer between Court and Mountain, four side streets between River and Austin, and a small portion in the Glen Clove Subdivision. Seguin City Council selected Jordan Foster Construction for the work. The project is expected to take two years to complete.
