The City is currently scheduled to begin rehabilitation work on and along W. San Antonio Street, from Academy St. to Walnut Ave., beginning in October of 2019. This upcoming initiative is comprised of two separate projects with the first being roadway
improvements and the second consisting of sidewalk and accessible ramp improvements.
As part of the 2013 Citywide Street Improvements Bond Program funds were approved for maintenance work on the substructure and surface of San Antonio Street. The first project will improve the greatly overall rideability of the road in this area and is expected to take approximately four months.
To augment available City funding, the City applied to the Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (AAMPO) for sidewalk improvements funding and was awarded federal funds to improve pedestrian facilities throughout the city, one location being this section of San Antonio Street. The sidewalk project will consist of sidewalk removal and replacement, accessible ramp installations and flashing beacon crosswalks – all designed to improve pedestrian movement along San Antonio Street. This second project is expected to take approximately six months.
“As the public is certainly aware, there has been a great deal of utility work underway on this roadway. Now that this work is wrapping up, we are happy to announce that we can move forward with the roadway and sidewalk improvements,” said Greg Malatek, Director of Public Works.
