Sunday road closure will ensure safety during transmission construction project

April 29, 2022 (SAN ANTONIO) – CPS Energy is partnering with the Texas Department of Transportation (TXDoT) on an improvement project that will eventually elevate lanes and bridges along the IH-35 corridor. In direct support of TXDoT’s plans, CPS Energy is working on a transmission construction project in a northeast area of San Antonio. The work will require all northbound and southbound lanes on IH-35, including frontage roads, to be closed intermittently as needed for transmission construction between O’Connor and N. Weidner roads.  

The work will take place on Sunday, May 1, 2022 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. If needed, the project will continue on May 12. Drivers are asked to find alternative routes and avoid the area, if possible, during the project hours.

Traffic control will be provided in the area on both weekends in coordination with TXDoT. CPS Energy reminds drivers to Move Over Slow Down, per State law, for crew and driver safety.
