Crews Change Light Bulbs along Loop 463

Heads up as you travel around Victoria this afternoon as crews are working on Loop 463 near Main Street. You'll probably see crewmen up in the bucket working on the street lights. According to a press release from the City of Victoria, crews have been hard at work over the past week replacing the bulbs in the street lamps along the loop. Over 150 bulbs were replaced just last week near Business 59 and Main Street. The city invites residents to find out more about this project by visiting Victoriatx.gov/communications.

Lane Reduction on Bridge Street

Another spot in town to keep an eye out for is the portion of Bridge Street that is being reduced to one lane for the next couple of weeks. The City of Victoria sent a press release out to remind motorists of the lane reduction happening between Juan Linn Street and Church Street. This project is underway so that Austin Generator Service can excavate a new concrete pad for an emergency generator.

This lane reduction is predicted to last until May 14th, but maybe in place longer if we experience several rainy days. This generator comes to the city of Victoria thanks in part to the Texas Division of Emergency Management and a subgrant issued from FEMA's Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. If you would like more info you can contact the city of Victoria's Engineering Department at 261-485-3340.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
