Q: How long will 7
A: The City anticipates the closure to last about a month. Street be closed?
Q: Where can I park?
A: In addition to the on-street parking surrounding the downtown area and the public lots on 8 Street, we have been granted permission from both Bank of America and San Antonio Credit Union to use these lots as a public parking area (just off of Church Avenue).
Q: Where will the construction equipment and materials be stored?
A: City Administration was able to keep Pasco Avenue open to two-way traffic with the installation of the pavement. To maintain the initial coat of pavement being laid in the last half of January, equipment and materials will be stored on 7 Street in the construction area.
Q: Why can’t the contractors work in half of the road on 7
A: They can, but on-street parking was going to be closed during the construction of the stormwater improvements on 7 Street and traffic would be shifted. The equipment and materials would be staged on Pasco Avenue and traffic would become a flagged construction site when moving equipment and materials to and from the area for the safety of our residents and the workers. This solution would also take more time to complete the improvements. Closing 7 Street provides the safest and most efficient way to complete the project.Street and keep the road open?
