Capital Excavation, the contractor on the San Antonio Street bridge project, will be using large precast bridge caps in the reconstruction of the bridge. The precast pieces are scheduled to be delivered Dec. 11-13, which may cause delays for some drivers.
According to a city news release, precast pieces will be delivered to the Prince Solms Park side of the bridge Dec. 11-12 at 11 a.m. Minimal traffic delays are expected as the delivery trucks travel from I-35 down Loop 337 to Common Street where they will park in the Prince Solms Park parking lot.
The remainder of the precast pieces will be delivered to the downtown side of the bridge Dec. 13 between 11 a.m. and noon, the release said.
Major traffic delays are expected as the delivery truck travels south on Seguin Avenue before turning onto Main Plaza. The truck will then back up onto East San Antonio Street toward the bridge, the release said.
Traffic-control officers will be present, and arrival times may be impacted by traffic delays or weather changes, the release said. Drivers are encouraged to avoid these areas if possible.
