McAllister Park's Starcrest Crossing will go under overpass

26 Sep 2012

When construction of the Wurzbach Parkway started, the trail crossing at the park's Starcrest entrance was closed. Cops issued tickets to those whom they caught going around the barricades.

Since then, TxDOT teamed with the City of San Antonio to build a temporary path with a traffic light about 300 feet east of the original one. The path is controlled by a push button on both sides that will change the light to red for traffic.

New path (green) will replace the temporary one (red) to connect McAllister's path (blue) and Salado Creek greenway (blue).

According the Josh Donat, Public Information Officer of TxDOT's San Antonio District Construction Office, the project is to be completed by summer 2013 at which time, the temporary path will be replaced with a new one to run under the Mud Creek bridge, located about 900 feet west of the original crossing. This will allow cyclists and other trail users to go through without having to interact with motor vehicles.

A temporary crossover allows cyclists to connect to Salado Creek Greenway.

On further west, an overpass is being built with an intersection to connect Wurzbach traffic with Starcrest. A section of Starcrest between the new intersection and the entrance to McAllister Park will be removed.

Wurzbach will feature a jogging and cycling path. See earlier story.
