BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

Project Background
In an effort to increase safety for pedestrians, especially around highly traveled pedestrian areas and transportation sites, the Roosevelt Avenue Pedestrian Structure project was selected for funding through the Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (AAMPO) Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). Local Agency Managed projects are managed by the City but receive federal funds administered through TxDOT. The funds paid to TxDOT by the City are for costs associated with oversight for administration of the federal funds.

The Roosevelt Avenue Pedestrian Structure project will be constructed as part of the Roosevelt Avenue (US 90 to Southeast Loop 410) 2017-2022 Bond project. The project will provide for pedestrian connectivity by constructing a pedestrian bridge on the west side of Roosevelt Avenue over the San Antonio River. The City will design and construct the improvements leveraging funding from TxDOT. Project construction is anticipated to begin in June 2022 and estimated to be completed by June 2023.
