Draft Environmental Assessment notice of availability and opportunity for a public hearing

Hearing request and public comment deadline All hearing requests and comments must be received on or before Monday, March 11, 2024.
Purpose The City of San Antonio, in cooperation with the TxDOT, is proposing to realign South Zarzamora Street from US 90 to Jennings Avenue to construct a grade separation over the Frio City Road/Kirk Place and Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) intersections in San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas. This notice advises the public that a draft environmental assessment (EA) is available for public review and that the City and TxDOT are affording an opportunity for a public hearing on the proposed project.

The proposed project would extend for 0.8 miles along South Zarzamora Street, from approximately 50 feet north of B Street to Linares Street. The project would require the acquisition of right-of-way (ROW) primarily from the east side of the roadway, resulting in a new ROW width ranging from approximately 100 to 300 feet. The project would require the permanent closure of several local roadways, including Walton Avenue, East Thompson Place, and Barrett Place; these local roadways would be permanently closed from South Zarzamora Street to Phyllis Street.

Northbound and southbound overpasses would be constructed from Humble Avenue/Walton Avenue to Harriman Place. Each overpass would consist of two 12-foot travel lanes and a 10-foot shared-use path. At-grade South Zarzamora Street would have one 12-foot travel lane in each direction, with a 10-foot shared-use path on both sides of the roadway. In addition, an access road would be constructed on the west side of South Zarzamora Street from Humble Avenue to Barrett Place and would consist of one 12-foot travel lane in each direction and a 6-foot sidewalk. The project would also include drainage improvements, signalized intersection upgrades, bicycle and pedestrian improvements, utility replacements and adjustments, bus route adjustments, signing, pavement markings, illumination, and the construction of retaining walls.

The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional ROW and potentially displace two residences and six non-residential structures. Relocation assistance is available for displaced persons and businesses. Information about the TxDOT Relocation Assistance Program and services and benefits for those displaced and other affected property owners, as well as information about the tentative schedule for ROW acquisition and construction, can be obtained from the City of San Antonio’s Public Works Department by 210-207-2099.

The proposed project is anticipated to impact the following property protected under Section 4(f) of the Department of Transportation Act of 1966: K O Steel Casings, Inc. Complex (2915 S. Zarzamora St.). The proposed project would require an approximate 0.003-acre temporary construction easement within this property, which was determined to have a de minimis impact on this property.

The draft EA, maps and drawings showing the project location and design, tentative construction schedules, and other information regarding the proposed project are on-file and available for inspection Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at 100 W. Houston St., 15th Floor, San Antonio, Texas, 78205. Project materials are also available online at
