University Drive to be closed some nights


    Parts of University Drive will be closed Sunday through Thursday nights due to changes with the water lines .

    The closure on Sunday through Thursday nights from 6 p.m. until 7 a.m., Charles McLure said, a senior engineering technician with the department of transportation and public works with the City of Fort Worth.

    The project should be done by the time the Colonial Golf Tournament comes to town, McLure said. University Drive will be open on Friday and Saturday nights.

    The project will replace and relocate water lines before a larger reconstruction can start on Berry Street sometime in the future, McLure said. There will be no official detour around the closed section on University Drive because of the many alternative routes.  

    Another water line project will begin between University Drive and Lubbock Avenue with working hours Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., McLure said. The city hopes to have this project completed in two to three weeks.
