Dan Williams Company began construction this week of new sidewalks along both sides of FM 3009 between I-35 and FM 78 in Schertz. So far, folks may be noticing the pink and orange marker stakes along the road to mark the location of the planned sidewalks.
The $3.2 million project will take about a year to complete. Most of that came from Category 7 mobility funds managed by the Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization, which selected the project based on strong support from the city of Schertz. A little more than $400,000 comes from Category 1 funds managed by the local TxDOT district.
Crews are limited to working between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on weekdays to minimize the impact to livelihood through the area. These hours should keep crews out of the rush hour traffic while also avoiding night work that could prove disruptive through the residential areas along this 3.1-mile stretch of FM 3009. Work will be happening on both sides of the road simultaneously.
Work will begin near I-35 on the southbound side of the road and near FM 78 on the northbound side. Drivers in the area can expect the right lane in each direction to close as needed. Dan Williams Company is committed to keeping one lane open in each direction.
