Four intersections to be rebuilt sequentially; VIA bus detours to be implemented in two phases
SAN ANTONIO (Sept. 29, 2017) – The City of San Antonio will begin work Oct. 6, 2017, to rebuild four intersections along Frio Street. To accommodate the construction and continue to serve our customers, VIA bus routes in the Centro Plaza area will follow several designated detours. The project is expected to last four to six weeks, during which VIA will deploy staff to assist customers in the affected areas, post directional signage, and share service updates online and via social media.
The project will begin on Frio Street at Cesar Chavez Boulevard and progress to the intersections at Buena Vista, Commerce, and Houston streets. Service detours are expected during construction at Cesar Chavez. Once the work moves to Buena Vista, Commerce and Houston, almost all routes that serve Centro Plaza will follow detours that connect at nearby Milam Park and other available stops.
To learn how the City’s Frio Street construction project might affect your trip in the Centro Plaza area, see maps and bus stop lists, please visit the information page, or call VIA Customer Service at 210-362-2020.
