Placedo -Benavidas Road Construction Update

Construction Now Into it's Final Stages

The Placedo Benavidas road, which will run between North Navarro and Salem road, is designed to east traffic on the north side of town, near the north side Walmart.

Ken Gill, engineer with the city of Victoria, tells us that the construction is entering its final phase, and will soon be drivable, helping to ease traffic congestion in the area.

“The contractors are working on their last section of the concrete pavement, and that is between east Larkspur and Tracy park. Of course the public knows that Tracy Park is being rerouted toward Salem drive and going in the back way, they are actually driving on the new concrete section,” said Gill.

Gill also says that some rain delays have delayed the construction work only slightly. The expected completion date still being spring of  this year.
