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.
Follow the project's progress on Twitter & Instagram @sanpedrocreek.
The San Pedro Creek team will continue setting rock veneer between the tunnel inlet and the Santa Rosa Street bridge. The team will also begin backfilling around the manantial structure between the tunnel inlet and the Santa Rosa Street bridge.
San Antonio River Authority and Bexar County officials gave local media a behind-the-scenes look at construction progress on Phase 1, Segment 1 of the San Pedro Creek Improvements Project. This segment is slated for completion in May of 2018 and will feature beautiful paseos, landscaping, art installations, increased flood mitigation and more.
The current view from just south of Martin Street will be transformed with the completion of Phase I, Segment I of the San Pedro Creek Improvements Project in May of 2018. Learn more about the project phases at www.spcproject.org.
“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
