TYLER, Texas — South Fleishel Avenue is reopened to traffic after construction of the new drainage system under the road was completed.

The new storm drain system will increase the capacity of the existing infrastructure and send the water outfall northwest of South Fleishel Avenue and East 6th Street alleviating street and home flooding issues that previously plagued the area.  

The road was closed in January of 2019. Construction was projected to last eight months.
