The City of San Antonio recently began a major project on Frio Street to improve pedestrian connectivity between Commerce Street and Cesar E. Chavez Boulevard.  The $5 million project will add bike lanes, wider sidewalks, a safer crosswalk for students and other traffic signal improvements.  Because the area is designated a cultural zone, there will also be additional streetscaping to promote foot traffic.

This project will affect the Downtown Campus community, as there will be a need to utilize alternate pedestrian and vehicle routes during the construction.  Campus entry and exit points will also be affected by the construction.  The following slides and brochure include some information provided by the city and depicts the pedestrian and vehicle transportation routes to use during the construction.  As this city project progresses over the next year, UTSA Facilities will provide updates to the routes and post additional information received from the city.  We will also disseminate this information through the university’s communication channels.

The city’s point of contact for this project is:
