Material shortages, utility conflicts cause major delay in Kegley Road project in Temple

According to the city, construction that was supposed to be finished by March 2022, was pushed to January 2023.

TEMPLE, Texas — A project to widen Kegley Road in Temple won't be finished until January 2023 which is nearly a year behind schedule, according to the city of Temple.

The city said material shortages and utility conflicts are causing the delay. Earlier in the year, the Contractor had trouble obtaining C-900 PVC water pipe, valves and related accessories due to supply chain difficulties. 

All 5,800 feet of waterline are now installed, checked and in use.

The project began in September 2021. It was supposed to be finished by March 2022. 

The stretch of Kegley under construction goes from West Adams Ave. to south of Blue Star Blvd.
