North Austin Street - a Seguin project

Last month we started a road expansion project in the city of Seguin. If you're in San Antonio, this project probably won't impact you a ton - which is why you've not heard about it much.

But if you're in Seguin ... well, wow.

It's a $5.3 million projct being done by Curran Contracting - a contractor that's relatively new to the San Antonio region (they're working on UTSA Boulevard in San Antonio). So, what are we doing?

We're widening N. Austin Street (Business 123) between the railroad crossing and I-10 to have a continuous center left-turn lane, shoulders fit for bicycles, sidewalks and a storm drain system. We held public meetings on the project and event sent out direct mailers to those living along the project directly, but we're still getting asked a few questions.
Among the most basic: what will it look like. Well, here you go (click on the image to make it bigger):

Again, we got started last month (August) and will wrap up spring of 2018 - that's just shy of two years of construction here. Closures will be announced to local media or posted right here on the blog. The first portion of the project - installing the storm drains and realigning utilities - is by far the most invasive. Hopefully we'll see the strain on local drivers relax as the project pushes forward.

Occasionally we'll need to cross some driveways. We're committed to maintaining access for folks, so we'll coordinate with business owners or residents these crossings to meet that commitment. If you have any questions during construction, please just let us know!
