FOR IMMEDIATE PUBLIC RELEASE:
AUSTIN, Texas (October 13, 2016) – Beginning Monday, October 17, 2016, Camp Mabry officials will open an additional entry and exit point to the base, in Austin, Texas at 45th Street and Mopac.
“We have temporarily opened additional entry points to Camp Mabry as a way to expedite traffic onto post during peak hours, as well as lessen the amount of vehicles on a main corridor while construction crews are present,” said Maj. Paul Mancuso, Camp Mabry Garrison Commander. “This will help ensure the safety of everyone in the area.”
The opening of this additional gate is in conjunction with the City of Austin’s 35th Street Underground Electrical Service Project and will allow visitors another option to enter and exit the post. This temporary 45th Street gate will be open for inbound and outbound traffic from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Weekend and after-hours traffic will need to access the post from 35th Street, as it will remain open and fully operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Those accessing Camp Mabry from 35th Street are asked to use caution in the area and allow for extra travel time, as lane reductions will be in place between Hillview Road and Foothill Drive.
“The project is expected to be complete in early 2017 and will help maintain reliable delivery of drinking water to City of Austin customers,” said Courtney Black, Senior Public Information Specialist for the Public Works Department. “The end result of this project will be a more efficient power supply for the Davis Water Treatment Plant, which includes the construction a new medium pump station and power distribution upgrade.”
