Those items include:
- A few inches of asphalt milling near UTSA Blvd.
- Weekly barricade inspections
- A few overhead light posts that need to be turned on
- Stockpiles that need to be hauled off
- Lane markings that need to be clearer, particularly near exit and entrance ramps
- Overhead highway sign structures that still need to be built
- TransGuide cameras we need to get back on
- Silt fences that need to be adjusted after the last round of storms
On a larger scale, concrete crews are still working on retaining walls project-wide, particularly around DeZavala Road and at UTSA Blvd. Bridge crews are working six days a week on the DeZavala overpass bridge - they're building bridge abutments (concrete shelves that hold the bridge support beams) and a few column caps.
For those driving through the project, expect the routine closures that have been going on overnight or, on the frontage roads, during mid-day hours. We won't have major closures until later this month. This biggies that are upcoming:
- Full weekend closure of DeZavala Road at I-10 while crews hang bridge beams. This is targeted for the end of the month, and Webber's leaders are optimistic they could do this before the school year gets going.
- Full closure of eastbound I-10 main lanes at UTSA Blvd while crews hang bridge beams for the new east-to-west turnaround bridge. This will be a single night, likely a weeknight. Webber folks are eyeing mid-August for this.
- Full closure if westbound I-10 main lanes at UTSA Blvd. same story as the eastbound side.
When exact dates are set in concrete, we'll let you know!
