Bexar County and the San Antonio River Authority, in coordination with the City of San Antonio, are partnering to transform San Pedro Creek to reflect its place in our cultural history, improve its function in flood control, revitalize natural habitat and water quality, and catalyze economic development.
The project will start at the tunnel inlet near Fox Tech High School and wind through the western side of downtown to the creek’s confluence with the Alazan and Apache Creeks. The project includes 4 miles of trails and 11 acres of landscaped area and will remove 30 acres and 38 adjacent structures from the 100-year flood plain.

“I cannot stress enough how critical it is to preserve culturally significant spaces like the Alameda as they help tell the rich story of our city and serve as reminders and inspiration to future generations.” - Roberto C. Treviño, City Councilman District 1
Your weekly #SanPedroCreek construction update continues. The Sundt Construction, Inc.-Davila Joint Venture team will continue setting rock veneer between the tunnel inlet and the Santa Rosa Street bridge. Crews will also build the channel bottom and backfill under the Martin Street bridge. Visit bit.ly/2xE2fOa for the complete traffic map with road closures.
Detailed pattern and tile work are just one of the many public art elements to look forward to in Phase I, Segment I of the San Pedro Creek project. Titled "Manantial," this pattern designed by San Antonio artist Michael Menchaca depicts a spring in the center, surrounded by large water droplets resembling the indigenous American symbol for the human eye.
In collaboration with Bexar County and the San Antonio River Authority, Phase 1, Segment 1 of the San Pedro Creek Improvements Project is on track to be finished by May of next year. Read more via San Antonio Express-News.
