[ARCHIVED] Lower Seguin Road Bridge Open

Lower Seguin Road Bridge Now Open

On June 28, 2016 the bridge located at Lower Seguin Road at Cibolo Creek, which is at least 20 years old, was closed when severe erosion was discovered and the structure was declared unsafe.


In December 2016 City Council approved demolition and reconstruction of the low-water-crossing bridge on Lower Seguin Road where it passes over Cibolo Creek. The project’s estimated cost was placed at $440,000 and was shared between the cities of Schertz and Cibolo and Bexar and Guadalupe counties since the bridge spans the city and county limits of all four government entities. Bexar County contributed $30,000 to the project, while Guadalupe provided demolition services as payment in kind. The remainder of the project was shared equally between the two cities.


Following the bidding and design process, J3 Construction began structure repair on September 11, 2017. Over a ninety (90) day period, the structure was replaced with box culverts. The newly
constructed improvements were designed to increase the water flow capacity from 105 cfs to 155 cfs and increase the roadway width from approximately 16 to 22 feet.


Construction has been completed and the new bridge is now open. 

On December 21, officials from the cities of Schertz and Cibolo and Bexar and Guadalupe counties gathered for a ribbon cutting to celebrate the re-opening of the bridge.
