Bexar County leaders provide updates on roads, power and more amid winter storm

SAN ANTONIO – Bexar County officials have provided the following updates related to roads, power, shelter and closures in the area.

See below for a comprehensive list of changes that are affecting the area.

Road situation:

Our Public Works Department (PW) continues to monitor the condition of County-maintained roadways and bridges. All PW crews are on a 24-hour rotational schedule to ensure traffic safety. Our supply of de-icing materials and chat rock is adequate. 144 tons of chat rock have been spread. Most County-maintained roads are fairly passable, with the exception of patches of roadway that are or were shaded. Roads with patches of ice are very dangerous and drivers need to use extreme caution should they have a need to be out and about. Our crews will continue to monitor and treat while this weather situation lasts.

Power curtailment:

In order to assist with the load reduction on the electrical grid, Bexar County has reduced its use of power where feasible. Enacting a load curtailment agreement with CPS, Bexar County has powered down facilities that serve a purely administrative need. Other facilities have been switched to backup power. Certain critical infrastructure continues to draw power from the grid, but is equipped to react to possible outages with their own backup generator power.

Shelter:

Bexar County is working with its elected officials and agency partners to identify and secure shelter for the homeless and those in critical need. Funds have been made available for the ongoing emergency situation.

Closures:

Bexar County facilities will be closed tomorrow, Wednesday, February 17, 2021, due to the ongoing inclement weather. Emergency and essential infrastructure services personnel will report as usual to their assigned work locations. Bexar County parks will remain closed on Wednesday as well.

Additionally, due to the ongoing dangerous weather conditions, all Bexar County Court proceedings are canceled for Wednesday, February 17, 2021. There will always be a Magistrate on duty.

PSA:

We are asking all citizens to conserve power where they can and assist in maintaining the integrity of our power supply. Stay home unless you absolutely have to venture out. For safety and preparedness tips, please go to our Office for Emergency Management website.

Bexar County Traffic and Road Conditions

Q) How often is the map updated?

A) The traffic flow is updated at loadtime and upon movement outside the initial map view, or upon refresh of the page. Any incident markers are checked for updates approximately every 5-10 minutes, but you need to reload the page to load any new updates; the data provided may still be the same status/view as before. Information shown is as only reliable as how it is reported to us.

Q) The roads are backed up or closed, but the map does not show the reason why, what's the deal?

A) Municipal traffic monitors or GPS trackers may not be available, could be offline, or reports and alerts are not syndicated to media outside of the area to use on the map. This is especially true for rural areas. You are encouraged to leave a road conditions report to help others.

Q) I see traffic alerts in the box below for the state, but they aren't related to the area I'm in?

A) We attempt to display alerts as specific to the area as possible, however in some cases the data we receive will only allow us to provide it by county or even statewide.

Q) Are you an official source of traffic information?

A) We are not an official source of traffic or real-time data. We have contracts and licenses to display certain up-to-date information that comes direct from some DOTs in various states, and the traffic flow on the maps is provided by Google or MapQuest. However, the data shown here should only be used for light informational and reference purposes and not to make critical decisions. Your safest option on the web is to use your state-run traffic website, or to call the DOT traffic line for your state, local authorities, or the state's 511 number if available.

Traffic Benefits

The improvements along this section of I-10 will enhance safety and mobility and reduce congestion by:

  • Increasing capacity to meet the growing traffic demand
  • Upgrading the freeway facility to current federal and TxDOT safety and design standards
  • Addressing deteriorating pavement conditions due to heavy traffic use and poor soils in the area
  • Reducing potential conflicts between frontage road vehicles and those entering and exiting the mainlanes
  • Providing turnarounds to assist with local access following conversion of frontage roads to one-way operation
  • Improving intersection operations

Construction Impacts on Traffic

Throughout construction of these improvements, drivers will experience temporary traffic shifts and overnight lane closures on the mainlanes and frontage roads in both directions, as well as temporary daytime and overnight ramp closures. TxDOT will do everything possible to keep two mainlanes open in each direction during peak travel times.

Daytime work is anticipated to take place Mondays through Saturdays, while nighttime work and any necessary lane closures are anticipated to take place between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., Sunday evenings through Friday mornings. Occasional weekend (Saturday and Sunday) closures for major traffic shifts or bridge construction operations may take place. At times, traffic may be detoured to frontage roads.

Traffic and Construction Updates

The latest information on lane closures, traffic shifts, and overall progress of the projects under construction is provided through:

  • Local news media outlets
  • The San Antonio District’s Go Ahead! blog, Twitter feed, and Facebook page
  • Permanent and temporary digital message signs stationed along the project corridor alerting drivers in real time to lane closures, traffic congestion, and construction activities
  • DriveTexas.org

Previous Public Involvement Activities

TxDOT strives to communicate with the public proactively and effectively throughout the project development phase before construction. This includes providing information and gathering feedback on mobility and safety issues that could impact the public by making transportation improvements.
