UPDATE: APRIL 28
Construction along Cibolo Valley drive is expected to start on May 4. Prior to that residents may see some prep work starting in the area, but this work should not impact traffic. At this time erosion control measures have been installed and utility companies are working to prepare for construction. The contractor will also be mobilizing equipment to the project area this week.
The contractor will start the project with the addition of temporary pavement to the east side of the street. This additional width will help keep traffic flowing more smoothly through the project area when the first half of the new street section is being constructed. Two-way traffic will be maintained during construction, and we urge residents to slow down, follow the traffic control devices, and allow extra time when driving through the project area. We appreciate everyone’s patience while we complete this necessary roadway improvement. Weekly updates will be provided on both the City of Schertz and Cibolo websites.
This Cibolo Valley Drive Expansion project is a joint venture between the City of Schertz, the City of Cibolo, and Babcock Road 165, LTD, the developer of Cibolo Crossing. This project will expand the section of Cibolo Valley Drive from Old Wiederstein Road to IH35. Construction activities will begin on Monday, May 4, 2020, and this project is expected to take 365 calendar days to complete. The roadway will be widened to match the existing sections of Cibolo Valley Drive with a total of five lanes, two lanes each direction and a center turn lane. The contractor for the project is JR Sitework, Marion, Texas, and the process will begin with lane realignments to make room for the first section of new pavement. We ask that all who travel this area use caution as the new lane paths will be changed throughout the project. Included in this project will be the installation of four new traffic control signals, two at the IH35 access roads, one at Ripps-Kruesler and Cibolo Valley Drive, and one at Old Wiederstein Road and Cibolo Valley Drive. New underground stormwater drainage structures will be included in this project. Sidewalks will be installed along the west side of the Cibolo Valley Drive (side closest to the Lantana development and the Cibolo Crossing development) to connect the retail center to our existing sidewalks.
