Council to Take Up Sidewalk Plans Near Schools

San Antonio’s City Council is set to take up a vote on a school pedestrian infrastructure improvements Thursday.

The project, which would cost about $2M, would construct sidewalks near five schools in the San Antonio Independent School District.

“Stop signs, crosswalks, all of these things that go unnoticed, but make a big difference when we’re talking about a city that’s moving toward Vision Zero, we definitely have to be mindful of these things,” District 2 Councilman Alan Warrick said.

The improvements are at schools in both District 2 and 3.

“We definitely don’t want any young people hurt, or definitely not killed, when traveling to and from school,” he said.

The work could begin in November, if the council approves it Thursday, and the work could be done by May.
