BPUB Announces Lane Closure on Elizabeth Street

The Brownsville Public Utilities Board (BPUB) announces a temporary lane closure on the left lane of south-bound East Elizabeth Street between 11th Street and 12th Street to install a fire line Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2023, from 6 p.m. to midnight Thursday, Oct. 19, 2023.

Traffic will be detoured until work is completed. BPUB crews estimate replacements should be completed Thursday morning. 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.
