Work on a sewage line on the east side of U.S. 181 between A and B streets in Floresville may affect Thursday afternoon traffic.

The Floresville Independent School District advises parents picking up children at Floresville South Elementary School and Floresville Middle School to use C Street. School buses will use G street to access campuses; some buses may run a few minutes late because of traffic.

City work crews are addressing leaks in the sewage line by replacing 700 feet of it with new pipes, according to city Public Works Supervisor Johnny Villareal. The line will be upgraded from 6-inch to 8-inch pipes.

The work is expected to be completed Friday, May 21.
