On November 23, 2022, at noon, the closed portion of Bonham St. located between E. Houston St. and E. Crockett will reopen to the public.

On November 28, 2022, Alamo Trust, Inc (ATI) Archaeology, in coordination with the City of San Antonio and Texas Historical Commission, will initiate a collaborative archaeological investigation located in Alamo Plaza and southwest of the historic Alamo Church. The investigation's goal is to determine if any portions of the south Mission compound wall remain and to preserve in place those remnants before the construction of the site's interpretation of the Mission Gate and Lunette. The duration of the onsite archaeology excavation work is approximately six weeks. However, visitors to the historic site will not be impacted by this important work to improve the future guest experience of the Alamo.

The investigation work area will be approximately 7500 square feet (0.17 acre) and will be enclosed with a 6-foot high fence for patron safety. During excavation, the City of San Antonio will coordinate with ATI on scheduled stakeholder visits inside the fence enclosure to view the archeology work as it takes place.

The Alamo website will post weekly updates during the six-week archaeology work and contains a listing of frequently asked questions and answers for what the project will entail.
