Project Update: February 6, 2018:
On Wednesday, February 7th, traffic control is expected to be removed and all lanes on Schertz Parkway will reopen to the public. While the project looks complete, there will still be work going on to finalize the project. Please slow down through the project area and pay attention to traffic control devices as there may be localized lane closures during the day while Capital finishes up the remaining work on the project.
Also, please be aware that there will be some additional work begin done on Schertz Parkway near the Live Oak Road intersection that is separate from the reconstruction project. This work is part of the new subdivision being built on the west side of Schertz Parkway. The development needs to modify some striping on Schertz Parkway to create a left turn lane and complete some traffic signal modifications. This work is expected to be done in the near future. We appreciate your patience.
Project Update: February 2, 2018:
Capital Excavation has been doing backfill, sprinkler system repairs, touch up work, and clean-up activities on the Schertz Parkway project. The results took slightly longer than originally anticipated; as a result traffic control has to remain in place a little while longer. The week of February 5, traffic control is expected to be removed and all lanes on Schertz Parkway will reopen.
While the project looks complete, work will still be conducted. Please be courteous and slow down through the project area. Be sure to pay attention to traffic control devices as there may be localized lane closures during the day as Capital finishes up the remaining work on the project.

Project Update: January 26, 2018:
Capital Excavation completed the asphalt paving, the last major construction item for the project meaning the project is near completion. Capital has started the final backfill, clean-up and touch-up work on the project. There are some additional, small-scaled repairs to make, such as the sprinkler system repair, which can be fairly timely. Please be patient while Capital completes these smaller items. Capital is hopeful that the week of January 29 they will complete the backfilling and apply the new pavement striping to the concrete surface. Once the striping is complete, Schertz Parkway can be fully re-opened to traffic. There may be some localized lane closures after the roadway is re-opened so Capital can do some touch-up and final work.
Please drive slowly through the project area and pay attention to any traffic control signs and barriers. We appreciate your patience as we wrap up this project.
Project Update: January 19, 2018:
The cold weather delayed some of the construction efforts on Schertz Parkway this week. On Monday, January 15, Capital Excavation paved the new multi-use pathway on the east side of the roadway. The path is nearly complete; some backfill and cleanup efforts are all that remains. Also, Capital Excavation was able to pour the remaining median curbs at the Maske Road intersection. Due to the poor weather, Capital was unable to finish pouring the new curb and gutter on Live Oak. However, Capital was able to pour the sidewalk at the northeast corner of Live Oak and Schertz Parkway. In spite of the cold weather and rain, the project continued to approach completion. The week of January 22 has anticipate warmer weather which will allow Capital to finish paving the asphalt on Live Oak Road and in the turn lane for Mesa Verde. They also expect to finish pouring the new curb and gutter on Live Oak Road; this will wrap up the vast majority of the construction items on the project. There are still backfill and clean-up items to complete, so there will still be activity and traffic control in the project area all next week.
UPDATE: January 16
Capital Excavation will change the traffic control routing on Schertz Parkway on Wednesday, January 17; the traffic switch will occur around 9:00 am after the morning traffic peak. Southbound traffic will remain where it is now (the outside lane). Northbound traffic will be moved to the outside lane on the northbound side of the road. This will allow Capital Excavation to work in the center of the roadway on the medians. We thank you for your patience during this traffic change.
Project Update: January 12, 2018
Capital Excavation completed the excavation on the north side of Live Oak the week of January 8. With the excavation complete, some of the new curb and gutter and the new Valero Drive approach were able to be poured. The asphalt base material on the north side of Live Oak was also placed and compacted. On Schertz Parkway, the ribbon curb for the new multi-use pathway was poured and the backfill/base placement was completed. The new base was density tested and all the tests passed inspection allowing Capital to place and compact the asphalt base material for the path. This asphalt base material will be placed on Monday, January 15. Because cooler temperatures are expected during the middle part of next week, the final, top surface of asphalt for the new path will not be able to be placed near January 18/19. Capital will continue working on the remaining curb and gutter on the north side of Live Oak and finish the concrete sidewalk near the tail end of next week.
Stay tuned for further information. We appreciate your patience at this time.
