EDWARDS — Edwards Spur Road project crews will install a water main across the roadway requiring overnight closures of the road between the U.S. Highway 6 intersection and the south side of the Edwards Riverwalk entrance.

The work began Sunday night and the overnight closures will occur through Thursday and are scheduled from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. each night. During this time, businesses and residences will remain accessible, but motorists may need to use the detour route to reach their destinations. Motorists are encouraged to utilize Miller Ranch Road and Highway 6 as an alternate route.
This closure will allow for safety-critical work installing the new water main across the Spur Road ahead of full roundabout construction this summer.

There will be another round of overnight closures along the road the following week as crews move north of the Eagle River Bridge to install another water main. This second round of overnight closures will occur from Sunday, April 14, through Thursday, April 18, also scheduled from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. each night. Motorists will again utilize Miller Ranch Road and Highway 6 as an alternate route to reach businesses and residences.
