Entrance to Cave on Cambria Drive Closed

Williamson County is working with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to determine the best solution to repair a neighborhood road after a large cave was revealed February 8. Williamson County officials told consultants today, February 15, that they are temporarily not allowed to go inside of the cave on Cambria Drive due to concerns regarding the ground shifting at the cave entrance. Sections of asphalt roadway and concrete curb show visible downward movement. County Engineer Terron Evertson will be working with structural engineers to determine a way to secure the cave opening so that consultants have a safe way to enter and exit the cave.

Help Stop the Flu

Influenza activity remains high across the state of Texas. The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) urges everyone six months old and older to get vaccinated against the flu. It is particularly important for pregnant women, young children, older adults, and people with chronic health conditions, because people in those groups are at a greater risk of severe complications if they do get the flu. The flu vaccine is available now. Find the closest location here. Other important steps include wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use hand sanitizer; cover your coughs and sneezes; stay home if you’re sick; and have a plan to care for sick family members at home.
