SAN ANGELO, Texas — The City of San Angelo announced Monday that drivers should expect several street closures on Paseo de Vaca Street along Sulphur Springs Park in the Santa Rita neighborhood, beginning Wednesday.

The closures will allow city workers to install irrigation sleeves across four different areas for the irrigation project that has been contracted for Sulphur Springs Park. Some street closures are necessary in order to complete the project, a release from the COSA Public Information Office said.

The first closure, beginning Wednesday, will be on Paseo de Vaca Street from the 900 block of West Washington Avenue to the 1100 block of Montecito Drive. This closure is not anticipated to last longer than two days.

Once the West Washington Street portion of Paseo de Vaca is reopened, the 1000 block of Montecito to South Bishop Street will be closed for cutting. This will likely take one day.

The final closure is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 10, from the 1100 block of Paseo de Vaca to the 1300 block of Algerita Drive. This closure should also only be for one day.

All work will be back-filled and packed with road base. The City will come back at a later date to pour concrete in these four areas, the release said.
