Construction on Ben Jordan has been delayed

The city of Victoria has announced a delay on their water valve replacement project on Ben Jordan between Anaqua Avenue to Walnut Avenue.

Work on the project was scheduled to begin Tuesday night and was expected to be completed Thursday morning.

However, works were delayed as additional parts were ordered to complete the project.

Construction will resume on June 17th from 7:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. and is expected to take two nights.

The road will be closed during this time.

Drivers are asked to seek alternate routes to avoid delays during construction times.

The easiest routes to avoid delays including taking Crestwood Drive from the southbound lane or Airline from the northbound lane.

Drivers can also avoid delays by using Sam Houston to bypass the construction zone.
