In the upcoming weeks, residents and commuters in Downtown San Antonio should be aware of two separate construction projects that will necessitate lane closures.
Starting Monday, February 5, a two-week lane closure will be implemented on Santa Rosa Street, spanning from Dolorosa Street to Houston Street. This closure is required for the extension of water lines. During this period, intersections at Santa Rosa & Dolorosa (eastbound only), Santa Rosa & Commerce (westbound only), and Santa Rosa & Houston (westbound and eastbound) will remain open to traffic.
Despite the lane closure, access to residences, businesses, and the Farmers Market parking garage will be maintained. To minimize congestion and assist with traffic control, officers will be on-site. The closure is expected to conclude by Sunday, February 18. The construction is linked to the Zona Cultural Streets 2017 Bond Project, with an anticipated completion date in Fall 2024. For additional information and construction updates, interested parties can visit SASpeakUp.com/ZonaCultural.
Simultaneously, another construction project will affect Dolorosa Street. Beginning Monday, January 29, one block of Dolorosa Street, stretching from Santa Rosa Street to Laredo Street, will be reduced to one lane for two weeks. The lane reduction is necessary for electric duct bank installation. The closures will be in effect daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., aligning with the morning commute hours. It is expected to reopen by Friday, February 9. This project is part of the City-initiated Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ)-funded Dolorosa Street Reconstruction project.

To keep residents and business owners informed about traffic and construction updates, the City of San Antonio Public Works will utilize various communication channels, including in-person visits, public meetings, emails, media outreach, and social media.
