NW Military Construction starts June 2021

Residents, the NW Military Highway construction project is soon to begin in June 2021. You may have already noticed AT&T contractors moving their fiber lines in recent months. They were moving their lines to be out of the way of the main construction project. The first phase of the construction will be the relocation of several utility lines beginning in June 2021 and lasting several months.  This will include portions of the Shavano Park water main.  During this phase it is likely that the two outside lanes will be closed and the two center lanes will be used for two-way traffic.

Work will begin on the north section near Loop 1604 and progress southward.  Again, we can expect various lanes to be closed during construction.

Construction work is anticipated to conclude in early 2024.

This project will accomplish:

  • Adding a continuous center-turn lane
  • Adding sidewalks and bicycle accommodations
  • Adding a traffic signal at Pond Hill Road intersection
  • Installing raised medians between Loop 1604 and Wagon Trail Road
  • Multiple drainage improvements to prevent increased storm water runoff
  • Partial reconstruction of residential driveways to safely tie into the expanded road
  • VIA covered bus stop installed near Pond Hill Road & NW Military Highway
