A construction crew carrying out bond-funded improvements will close a section of De Zavala Road on three nights over the next two weeks to make room for water line work.

Weather permitting, the installation of San Antonio Water System (SAWS) lines crossing De Zavala will create the following detours:

  • From 8 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m. Tuesday and from 8 p.m. Wednesday to 5 a.m. Thursday, traffic will be diverted through the Woods of Shavano subdivision along Indian Woods, Shavano Woods, and Parksite Woods.
  • From 8 p.m. May 20 to 5 a.m. May 21, traffic will be diverted south of De Zavala along Indian Woods and Lockhill Selma Road.

A SAWS crew performed overnight work Thursday night on De Zavala between Rogers Parkway and Ridge Chase.

The $15.5 million road-widening project from Interstate 10 to Lockhill Selma is part of the 2017 voter-approved bond package and is designed to improve drainage and add curbs and sidewalks to the area for pedestrian safety. The entire De Zavala Road project is scheduled to be completed by February.
