We wish to provide you with the latest updates regarding the ongoing construction efforts at the Alamo. Our commitment to both broadening the construction boundaries and adapting vehicular and pedestrian pathways remains steadfast. We sincerely thank you for your continued understanding and support as we press forward with the Alamo Plan.
Adjustments to Vehicular Access: Starting from November 1, 2023, there will be a pause in vehicular movement on Alamo Plaza from Commerce St. to Crockett St., as well as Crockett St. from Alamo Plaza to Losoya St. This temporary change is projected to last until July 1, 2024. We're aware of the potential inconvenience this may cause, but believe it's a necessary measure to ensure construction proceeds safely and efficiently.
Modifications to Fencing and Pedestrian Routes: On November 6th, a protective fence will be established around the Texas Cavalier Education Center, covering the southern section of the Alamo Gardens and the passage between the Menger Hotel and the Alamo. However, pedestrian movement between the Alamo and the Menger Hotel will remain unhindered.
Moreover, as of November 1, 2023, we will be enhancing the fencing around the Mission Gate, Lunette, and the surrounding Plaza de Valero area.
For visitor safety and ease of movement:
- A designated pedestrian lane will run from North to South on Alamo Plaza, and East to West on Crockett St., outlining the western boundaries of the Alamo District.
- To the east of the Alamo District, another pedestrian route will initiate near the Menger Hotel, stretching North to South. This path, close to the Menger Hotel, will lead directly through the Alamo Arcade, ensuring a seamless connection from Alamo Plaza to the RiverCenter Mall vicinity.
Alamo Cenotaph Update: We are honored to announce a forthcoming Structural Integrity Investigation for the historic Alamo Cenotaph, set to begin November 13, 2023. This effort is pivotal to protect, assess, and ensure the monument's continued significance, where it stands, for future generations. As a testament to our commitment, the Alamo Cenotaph will be preserved in place, maintaining its location and historical context. Detailed updates and visuals related to the investigation can be accessed via our website.
