Portion of San Antonio River to be drained in January

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — A section of the San Antonio Riverwalk will be dry for a week in January.

No, not dry THAT way, you’ll still be ale to get a margarita the size of an average swimming pool.

City official have announced that the river will be drained between Sunday, January 23rd, and Sunday, January 30th.

Crews will be performing some maintenance and cleanup while the water is stopped.

The main part of the River Walk will be drained completely, and the main channel between East Josephine Street and East Nueva Street will be partially drained.

The maintenance will also cause a part of Alamo Street that runs from Market to West Commerce to be closed and the sidewalk will be blocked while a crane is set up to help with the project.

Go Rio Cruises won’t be operating in the downtown or Museum Reach areas while work is being done.

The project is part of the River Walk Maintenance program, a joint effort between the City of San Antonio’s Center City Development Operation, Public Works Department, and the San Antonio River Authority.

Draining of the River helps keep it a clean and beautiful attraction for residents and visitors.
