The Walnut Street drainage ditch crossing between South Yaupon and Silverbell Street is scheduled for removal and replacement. The work will require full closure of Walnut Street.

The work is scheduled to begin with street pavement and concrete drainage pipes below being demolished and removed.

The contractor will then install the new pipes and replace the street pavement before traffic can be released across the structure.
Residents can expect periodic traffic obstructions beyond the closed portion as the workers enter and exit the area with materials.
