Mud Creek bridge is a priority; 2014 before greenway connector is completed

23 May 2013

In this week's statement by Josh Donat for TxDot, the replacement contracting company that took over for Ballenger Construction on the segment of the parkway between Jones-Maltsberger and Wetmore declared the Mud Creek Bridge a priority.

The bridge has some quality issues to be dealt with, and the new Starcrest route bending south to connect with Wurzbach Parkway is yet to be complete. Once the future east-bound lanes of Starcrest and Wurzbach Parkway are finished, the current two-way traffic operation will be pushed onto the new roadway. Crews will then move their work over to the future west-bound lanes toward Blanco.

Curb-building crews have moved in to finish the brick-paver sidewalk areas, an aesthetic feature to the parkway. For cyclists and joggers, the San Antonio Parks and Recreation department are putting the finishing touches on a Salado Creek Greenway connector that will connect it to McAllister Park. The project date for this connector is early 2014. For now, it has been observed that Lady Bird Johnson Park at 10700 Nacogdoches has a trailhead that will allow cyclists a safe entry to the greenway where riders can choose round trip between the trailhead to where it meets the Wurzbach contruction and the other way towards Tobin Park. Some riders have gone beyond Tobin to reach the back end of Fort Sam Houston. Those who hold the U. S. Government Common Access Card (CAC) will be able to enter the post. This card is issued to military, civilian, and contractor employees who are assigned work at the post or other DoD installations.
