City Breaks Ground on $7.3 Million UTSA Boulevard Project
UTSA Boulevard is going to get a $7.3 million makeover. The money came from the City’s 2007 Bond Savings, and from the Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization.
City officials including Councilman Ron Nirenberg and UTSA President Ricardo Romo broke ground for the improvements today.
The project includes reconstruction of the roadway and expansion from two lanes to four lanes. The roadway will also get a raised median and new left turn lanes, plus improvements to sidewalks and curbs.
“As one of many important projects in District 8, UTSA Boulevard is a key roadway for various daily commuters who live, work and attend classes at the University of Texas at San Antonio,” said Councilman Ron Nirenberg. “Multi-modal enhancements will ensure that the commute improves not just for drivers but those who choose to walk and bike as well.”
The project is being managed by Transportation & Capital Improvements and was designed by Vickrey & Associates, Inc., and will be constructed by Texas Sterling Construction, Co.
