After a year of construction, the South Flores bridge near Roosevelt Avenue is once again clear for drivers to use. On February 13, Bexar County Commissioner Sergio “Chico” Rodriguez and members of the Bexar County Public Works Department held the official ribbon cutting.
The project marks the completion of the first phase of a ten year plan to improve several areas around Six Mile Creek. Those areas are prone to flooding. The modifications allow for the widening of existing channels, while adding in sidewalks, bike lanes, and two new streets for the community to use.
The reconstruction of the bridge at S. Flores and Roosevelt cost $2.9 million of the projected $35 million for the entire construction project.
