BPUB Announces Emergency Road Closure

The Brownsville Public Utilities Board (BPUB) announces a temporary closure of a section of East 12th Street from Grant Street to Hayes Street starting today, Thursday, June 2 until approximately Thursday, June 23, 2022 to repair a 6-inch sewer main line buried in the middle of the street.

Traffic will be detoured until work is completed. All construction dates and times are approximate, and the end date and time may vary due to the nature of weather, soil conditions and job provisions.

BPUB, Texas Department of Transportation and City of Brownsville departments have coordinated on this effort to make it a safe and efficient operation. BPUB apologizes for any inconveniences the closure may cause.
