I-10 In Far East San Antonio: Extended Closure At Woodlake Parkway

As part of our ongoing construction expansion project on the mainlanes and frontage roads of I-10 in Far East San Antonio, we wanted to give folks a heads-up on an upcoming closure on Woodlake Parkway that will impact the Horizon Pointe Subdivision.

Starting at 7 a.m. on Monday, September 9, Woodlake Parkway will be closed at the I-10 westbound frontage road. This temporary closure will last approximately two weeks -- it's scheduled to end at 5 p.m. on Friday, September 27.

During this closure, Horizon Pointe residents wishing to access the subdivision will continue traveling on the westbound frontage road, turn right on Foster Road and take another right on Sierra Sunset to return to Woodlake Parkway (see map).

As always, we're thankful for your patience as we continue this expansion and improvements work along I-10 East between Foster Road and Graytown Road. 

As a reminder, the frontage road project led by contractor Texas Sterling Construction Company includes:
  • Conversion of two-way frontage roads to one-way.
  • Reconfiguration of entrance and exit ramps.
  • Construction of a new overpass at Woodlake Parkway.
  • Construction of a new ground-level intersection at Graytown Road. 
  • Intersection improvements at Foster Road, FM 1516 and Loop 1604.
The growing pain associated with construction, including closures and detours, will eventually give to a better and safer roadway and intersections. 

In trying to meet the increased mobility and infrastructure needs of this rapidly-growing area, the project is converting frontage roads from two-way traffic to one-way traffic -- much like we're doing on I-10 on the other end of town (the corridor between Northwest San Antonio and Boerne). 

Research shows that there’s a significant reduction in the number, type and severity of crashes on one-way frontage roads. The conversion to a one-way format is already in place while construction continues on the frontage roads and the new bridge/overpass at Woodlake Parkway is nearly complete.
