Alamo Upgrades Underway

If you’re taking visitors to the Alamo this week, you’ll notice something different.

Workers are installing high-speed fiber-optic cable for internet and wi-fi service.

“For the time being, visitors will notice scaffolding around the long barrack,” said Brittany Eck with the Texas General Land Office.

They’re also working on the concrete porch canopy at the front entrance of the Alamo Research Center.

“During the time that the front door is closed off, we will have an alternate entrance,” she said. Visitors will be directed to the side door.

These two projects are the start of $5 million worth of improvements approved by the Texas Legislature for the Shrine of Texas Liberty.

The Alamo will remain open while the work is being done.
