In response to recent events and in consultation with the San Antonio Police Department, The Alamo will install new, temporary fencing today on Alamo Plaza. The fencing will secure The Alamo and will remain in place as long as events indicate it is needed.

The fencing will be made of four-foot tall chain link mounted on top of water filled plastic barriers. It will be placed on the sidewalk on the western edge of the plaza from the intersection of Alamo and Crockett Streets to the intersection of Alamo and Houston streets. A second section will run along the northern edge of the plaza from Alamo and Houston streets to the Long Barrack. Fifteen-foot wide access points will be available for pedestrians on both Alamo and Houston streets.
