The Avenue S reconstruction project is moving forward on schedule. The contractor has completed work on the northside of Avenue S from 53rd to 45th streets. This includes roadwork and curbs, sidewalks and driveways on the northside.
Work on the southside of Avenue S is underway. Crews are installing water lines from 53rd Street to 51st Street. The contractor anticipates completion of the project between 53rd and 45th streets by the end of January, with substantial completion of the entire project later in 2023.
Galveston County is overseeing the project. The reconstruction is funded partially by a 2019 county bond election and with funding from the City of Galveston.
