Downtown Buda may face traffic delays with the closure to public traffic on San Antonio Street and Garison Road for construction starting June 21 until the fall.
The road improvement projects will “focus on intersection safety improvements by separating San Antonio Street and Garison Road turning movements,” according to a press release from the city.
The two roads will be worked on in phases and will not be completely closed through the entirety of the project. The roads will be closed to through traffic, but will be open to residents and businesses located on the roads.
David Marino, public information officer for the city, said that he does not expect the construction to impact traffic on Main Street, however it may impact residents and businesses on San Antonio Street and Garison Road.
It may also impact any through traffic that customarily cuts through San Antonio Street.
The project’s purpose is to create better access to City Park in the future as well as improve the intersection between the Main Street, San Antonio Street and Garison Road intersection.
The anticipated end to the project will be in mid-November when final paving of the roads is completed.
Cox Commercial Construction will complete the project in four phases, according to the press release. The contractor will be working on San Antonio Street first, between the area from Main Street to San Marcos Street.
Detour signs will be placed off Main Street informing the public about alternative routes.
