The right lane of northbound Broadway between Brackenridge Avenue and Humphrey Avenue will be closed for the next two weeks as crews bury utility lines at the future site of the San Antonio Children’s Museum.
Its one of many closures in the area that drivers are dealing with.
Construction has altered the intersection of Hildebrand and Broadway for months as crews work to improve drainage as part of the 2007 bond project.
Work began in December 2012 on the $15.5 million project and is expected to wrap up in July 2014.
Heavy flooding in May slowed work down, but that is not expected to push back the completion date.
As crews improve drainage, they will also enhance streets and curbs.
While the project is focused on improvement, it is not helping local businesses.
Cheesy Jane’s, located at the corner of Broadway and Hildebrand, has seen a drop in business due to the inconvenience drivers are experiencing.
“It's getting worse and worse,” said restaurant owner John Lindskog. “Last weekend, they closed the intersection and sales fell by 50 percent. The food trucks are kind of saving us right now.”
Here’s what drivers can expect throughout the next week:
Monday through Friday, lanes will be restricted on Mulberry between St. Mary’s and Highway 281.
Monday through Sunday, expect some closures on Hildebrand between the San Antonio River and Broadway.
Hildebrand will also see lane restrictions between Broadway and New Braunfels Avenue.
Broadway will see some closures between Groveland Place and Hildebrand.
The closure along Broadway between Brackenridge and Humphrey is unrelated to the drainage project construction.
