New detour routes created for King William Fair

Downtown Detours around S. Alamo Street for Fiesta's King William Fair


Detours around the construction along S. Alamo between Probandt and E. Guenther have been created for simple access to this year's King William Fair on Saturday, from 9 a.m to 6 p.m. 

SAWS is completing utility work in coordination with the City of San Antonio's S. Alamo Street and drainage  improvements project.

The project will alleviate drainage issues, improve roadway conditions and enhance pedestrian access to the area.

It is on schedule for completion in August 2014 and is within budget. 

The closed stretch of S. Alamo Street borders the Blue Star Arts Complex and includes the S. Alamo Street Bridge over the River Walk.

There is no parking permitted in the Fair Zone and very limited parking throughout the remaining King William area.
