Excuse our Mess!  Our local businesses are open during construction. 

Please be aware that traffic patterns will change in February for the Downtown Area. 
7th Street between Church and Pasco Avenues will be closed for about a month, with detours being on 8th and 6th Streets. On-street parking on adjacent side streets will still be available, as well as public parking areas as marked below.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Q: How long will 7th Street be closed?
A: The City anticipates the closure to last about a month.

 

Q: Where can I park? 
A: In addition to the on-street parking surrounding the downtown area and the public lots on 8th 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: How can I get to the businesses?
A: The sidewalks will remain open, as will the on-street parking on abutting side streets and the parking areas in the attached map. Please call the business directly in advance if you need to make any special accommodations. 

 

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 7th Street in the construction area.

Q: Why can’t the contractors work in half of the road on 7th Street and keep the road open? 
A: They can, but on-street parking was going to be closed during the construction of the stormwater improvements on 7th 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 7th Street provides the safest and most efficient way to complete the project.
