Councilwoman Rebecca J. Viagran joined Transportation & Capital Improvements (TCI) and community members for the ground breaking ceremony of the Goliad Road Drainage project. This $10.3 million project will construct drainage improvements along a 1.75 mile stretch of Goliad Road from S.E. Military to Loop 410.
“Here in District 3, we’re tackling poor drainage issues with projects like the Goliad Road Drainage project,” said District 3 Councilwoman Rebecca J. Viagran. “Safety and community are our number one priorities and this project will address residents’ concerns.”
The project will install inlets, storm sewers and box culverts. The roadway will also be reconstructed and new curbs, sidewalks and driveway approaches will be installed. Bike lanes and some retaining walls will also be added.
“Goliad Drainage is an example of the all-inclusive style of projects we do at TCI,” said Mike Frisbie, City Engineer and Director of TCI. “Not only will we address drainage issues, but we’ll also ensure that motorists, pedestrians and cyclists are able to use this road safely when we’re finished.”
The Goliad Road Drainage project is managed by TCI for the City of San Antonio. The design was created by CDS Muery and will be constructed by Texas Sterling Construction. The project, funded by the 2012-2017 Bond Program, is scheduled to finish in the fall of 2015.
