[ARCHIVED] Elbel Road Construction Project

Elbel-Road-Project

Work will begin on the Elbel Road project in October. The work involves installing some new storm drain piping and inlets and a new "mill and overlay." The new piping and inlets will help improve the drainage of the street between Westchester Dr. and Dietz Creek. The storm drain will take the longest to complete. Once the storm drain work is completed, the street will receive a “mill and overlay.” This involves removing a portion of the existing asphalt surface and replacing it with a new asphalt layer. The new driving surface will be smoother and will help extend the life of the street. The new surface will be similar to the new surface placed on Schertz Parkway between Live Oak and the railroad tracks last year. The storm drain work and the mill and overlay are expected to be completed around the end of the year, weather permitting.  

The project will also replace the HAWK pedestrian crossing system at Westchester with a new traffic signal. This may be done after the roadwork is complete. The traffic signal equipment and hardware often have a very long lead time. The existing HAWK system will remain in place and be operational until the new traffic signal is fully complete and operational. The traffic signal will improve pedestrian safety at the Westchester intersection and will also help the intersection function more efficiently.

Project Update 12/22/2021

On Wednesday afternoon, December 22,  the traffic control on Elbel Road will be changing. Two-way traffic with one lane in each direction will be placed in the center two lanes. The curb lanes will be closed. Access to the Post Office and Tax Office will be maintained. This setup will remain in place through the holidays, until the contractor can do the paving estimated to start the week of January 3. We will issue a new notice before the paving work begins.
