The River Walk Capital Improvements Master Plan was developed to identify and prioritize the infrastructure needs for the historic river bend along the River Walk. The plan identified a list of capital improvements with an estimated total cost of $15 million to be constructed over a 5 year period. Improvements identified in the Master Plan include sidewalks, stairs, lighting upgrades, walkway retaining walls, ADA improvements and a number of aesthetic improvements.
The Master Plan was truly a collaborative effort between the City of San Antonio, project architect Beaty Palmer Architects, and downtown stakeholders. The master plan design establishes a new baseline for the River Walk’s physical condition and quality, creates an on-going assessment/maintenance program, and establishes a framework for change to accommodate new developments adjoining or interacting with the River Walk.
The plan was finalized in August 2008. Implementation of the plan is on-going, utilizing a phased approach.
The River Walk Capital Improvements Master Plan and its implementation will underscore the City of San Antonio’s on-going commitment to making our downtown a better place.
