Lane of Lamar Blvd closed after rain damages pavement


AUSTIN (KXAN) — One lane of Lamar Boulevard has been shut down between 38th and 45th streets after heavy rains washed away some of the pavement.

The northbound outside travel lane is closed until further notice. Public Works crews had been recently working on the road. The overlay work they applied to the road was washed away damaging the surface of the road.

Crews won’t be able to repair the damage until the rain stops. KXAN’s traffic reporter Amanda Dugan suggests taking Medical Parkway as an alternate route.
