Some relief is in sight for drivers who pass through the Broadway and Hildebrand intersection on a refular basis--but some will tell you the City should learn a lesson from this project.
"This big complicated project has twenty construction phases--and we have about four phases left. So we're getting down to the final stretch" said the City's Transportaiton and Caital Improvements Director Mike Frisbie. He told 550 KTSA News one of the bigger headaches left for drivers will be some total weekend closures of the intersection in May. Otherwise, the project is right on target to be completed by the end of July.
People living at one nearby upscale development have done what they can to take the months of work in stride.
"They've been very, very good in so far as accepting the fact that'sit's going to take some time to get it done" said Red McCombs, whose company has developed "The Broadway." Still, McCombs told 550 KTSA News the city should do a better job going forward in considering how such major projects along highly traveled corridors affect traffic.
A public meeting on the project, where it stands, and what lies ahead--is set for Tuesday Evening at 6:30--at the Witte Museum.
