Sundt Begins Work on Lake McQueeney, Lake Placid Dams

SEGUIN, TX — Sundt Construction has started work to update the Lake McQueeney and Placid dams for the Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority. The $82 million project includes replacing the existing dam gates with new steel crest gates, making structural modifications to the existing spillway structure, upgrades to the mechanical system and electrical distribution, new video surveillance, and more.

“These projects are critical pieces of infrastructure to the Lake McQueeney and Lake Placid communities. Sundt is happy to bring our dam experience and update the dams for this community,” said Darren Okruhlik, Sundt Area Manager.

The dams at Lake McQueeney and Lake Placid are part of six hydroelectric dams along the Guadalupe River that create the Guadalupe Valley hydroelectric system and associated lakes. The Lake McQueeney and Lake Placid dams are more than 90 years old and have reached the end of their useful life. This project will improve dam safety and provide the communities their lakes for generations to come.

In Texas, Sundt is currently working on the San Pedro Creek Improvements, the Broadway Street improvements, Zona Cultural in downtown San Antonio, and the $477 million 183 North Mobility project in Austin in a joint venture with Archer Western. Sundt also recently began work on the Upper Brushy Creek Dam 101 in Williamson County.
