Broadway-Hildebrand construction complete

City crews wrapped up $15.5 million project Thursday

SAN ANTONIO – It's been a test of patience for drivers since January 2013, but the Broadway-Hildebrand area is finally free of construction.

City crews announced the project completion on Twitter Thursday night with a post that said, "Success! All lanes on Broadway and Hildebrand open!"

The Broadway Corridor Phase IIIA did impact roads and make it a challenge for customers to reach businesses in the area, but it wasn't just a road project. The main purpose was installing a drainage system to hold up to a 100-year storm event.

Broadway Street (from Allensworth to Burr Roads) and Hildebrand Avenue (from New Braunfels Avenue to San Antonio River/bridge) also received new curbs, sidewalks, driveways, turn lanes and traffic signals.

SAWS replaced water, sewer and gas facilities.

CPS Energy buried all overhead utility lines at the intersection.

The project cost $15,530,860.
