The City will begin work on Wurzbach from Babcock Road to Fredericksburg Road to widen and enhance the sidewalks for pedestrian safety beginning the week of January 5th. The work will begin at the Babcock end of Wurzbach progressing toward Fredericksburg Road and will take approximately four months to complete. During this time, there will be lane closures and traffic congestion on Wurzbach. Please allow more time to travel through this area or take an alternate route to avoid the traffic congestion.
We wanted to make you aware of transportation and road construction project around the STMC that may result in traffic delays: Closure of Fredericksburg Road and Medical Drive Intersection Scheduled
The intersection of Fredericksburg Road at Medical Drive will close the night of Wednesday, November 5. Thursday morning's traffic will need to seek alternate routes.
This means the new roadway surface for Fredericksburg Road - a bridge over the future through lanes of Medical Drive - will be slid into place by Saturday, November 8. Though the contractor has two full weeks (14 days) to get Fredericksburg Road reopened, TxDOT is hoping to have the work done and lanes reopened in half that time.
Although this road work was delayed from its original schedule in early October, the project is back on track for implementation.
Expect to see single lanes of Fredericksburg Road - and some alternating closures on Medical Drive - as crews prepare for the work on Wednesday evening. At 12:01 a.m. Thursday morning, Fredericksburg Road will close down entirely. No through traffic, and no left turns, will be permitted at this location. Traffic trying to continue on Fredericksburg Road will need to turn right onto Medical, then follow appropriate city streets to reach its destination. The official planned detour uses Wurzbach Road, the I-10 frontage roads and Callaghan Road.
This info has been posted to the TxDOT blog, along with a video going through the proposed detour route. You can check out this information and video at http://txdotsanantonio.blogspot.com .
