San Antonio officials invite community members to a March 19 public meeting about designs for an upcoming road and drainage project in the north central San Antonio area.

The background

Representatives with the city’s public works department said they will offer a preview of designs for a planned street and drainage improvement initiative that will affect the adjoining Oakhaven Heights and Kentwood Manor neighborhoods east of Hollywood Park.

Specifically, city staff will explain Phase 2 of the project—which will cover the streets of Copper Hill Drive, Parkstone Boulevard and Parhaven Drive—and an adjacent drainage channel that ranges between Town Oak Drive and Oakhaven Park.

The neighborhoods are bound roughly by US 281, Henderson Pass and Thousand Oaks Drive.

A closer look

According to city officials, planned improvements for this project will involve street reconstruction, construction of an underground stormwater system, sidewalks and curbs, driveway approaches, and drainage fixes. While developing the city’s 2022 bond package, city officials reported receiving more than 300 complaints from Oakhaven Heights and Kentwood Manor residents about flooding on their property in recent years.

The city’s voter-approved 2022 bond will direct $8.07 million for the street fixes and $7.9 million for the drainage improvements.

City officials said project work will take place between fall 2025 and summer 2027.
