SAWS construction continues along Salado Creek Greenway
Construction for the San Antonio Water System (SAWS) continues along the Salado Creek Greenway between the San Antonio International's Northeast Entrance Road and Fort Sam Houston. On an approximate 200-foot (60-meter) stretch of the trail located between the Lady Bird Johnson trailhead and I-410, riders are hoping that they can say goodbye to the "stink spot" that had been a nuisance for several years. SAWS had performed massive construction of its sewer system, a continuation of a project that had been underway for at least three years.
Just west of the airport hill, an approximate 1000-foot (300-meter) stretch of new greenway pavement had been poured. This will allow an easement for a new sewer line.
The SAWS sewer work has been an ongoing event for over three years along this path. Additional work has been underway at Holbrook Road that leads to Petroleum Drive, located at the backside of Fort Sam Houston.
Another trail affected by the sewer work is the Apache Creek Greenway. It is closed from 19th street to San Jacinto Street.
