What is the Austin Works Yard Renewal Project?

The Austin Works Yard Renewal project is a critical city initiative to address significant operation constraints that impact the City’s ability to meet current and future servicing needs. The Austin Works Yard Renewal Project includes: a new Fleet Maintenance and Workshop building; expansion of the western portion of the existing Works Yard and associated bulk storage to the north and west; conversion of vacated workshop spaces in the Water Sewer Utility Building to administrative space; and abatement and demolition of the existing Fleet Maintenance and Auxiliary Building to convert into fleet parking and storage.
