South Alamo (Sewer Bypass Plan)

  • The contractor will restore the existing sanitary sewer pipes on S. Alamo in the upcoming month. In order to complete this work, a bypass will be necessary in upstream locations north of the project.
  • Starting as early Monday, July 8, 2024, the contractor will construct the sewer bypass beginning at Navarro, down Crockett St, then Alamo Plaza and through S. Alamo to La Villita. The restoration and need for the bypass is estimated to last 8 weeks. The bypass pipe will be positioned behind the edge of sidewalk and installed under driveways, cross-streets, sidewalk and ADA ramps at all crossings. There will continue to be one-way southbound travel through the S. Alamo corridor and two lanes available through Market St. at the S. Alamo intersection for ongoing utility and storm drain construction.


South Alamo One-Way Southbound Traffic

  • South Alamo has been converted to one single southbound traffic lane from March 18, 2024 thru end of project.
  • Pedestrian access on S. Alamo east side from Market to Cesar Chavez, and South Alamo west side from Nueva to La Villita St.
  • 4-way Stop at Nueva intersection has been implemented.
  • Business access provided.


Closure of NW Quadrant of Nueva & South Alamo Intersection

  • The NW Quadrant of Nueva & South Alamo Intersection closed March 18, 2024 to install chilled water and make a tie-in. Nueva is accessible to two-way traffic off Presa Street and will allow eastbound traffic to take a right turn onto South Alamo. No right turn onto Nueva will be permitted from South Alamo.


E. Market & S. Alamo Intersection – Lane Closures for Inlet Installation

  • On 5.29.24, Contractor Sundt Construction closed the most north lane on Market St. east of S. Alamo and the most west lane on S. Alamo north of Market St. to install storm drain inlets. The work is anticipated to last 3-4 weeks. Eastbound traffic will be allowed to take right and left turns onto South Alamo, and continue eastbound with a minimum of two traffic lanes opened for through traffic. ** planning to install the traffic signal drill shaft at the NE corner during this time but only under daily sidewalk closures **


E. Cesar Chavez & S. Alamo Intersection - Lane Closures for Inlet and Gas Installation

  • On 5.29.24, Contractor Sundt Construction closed the southern lanes on Cesar Chavez across the S. Alamo intersection to install a storm drain inlet as well as a gas main crossing. The work is anticipated to last 3-4 weeks. We will maintain one lane traveling eastbound and westbound along Cesar Chavez. There are no changes to the S. Alamo traffic configuration at this time.
