Masonry cleaning, salt core harvesting and mortar sampling is currently being conducted on the exterior walls of the Long Barrack. For the week of 4/12 - 4/18, the preservation team will be reviewing the condition of the barrel vault roof inside the Church.

A fenced area across the street from the Alamo, near Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, has been installed. This fenced area is temporary, and will be where the 18-pounder cannon replica and Losoya House interpretation will be on display.

Crockett Street in front of the Menger Hotel remains closed to vehicular traffic but is now open for use as a temporary valet area for the Menger Hotel. This portion of the street remains open to pedestrian foot-traffic. Fencing in Alamo Plaza has been reduced. A portion of the south end of Alamo Plaza, including sections of Bonham, Crockett, and Alamo Streets are still closed for Alamo Plan Phase One construction.

Several excavation units have been opened inside the Church. The units in and around the Long Barracks have been completed, however the building remains closed as archaeologists use the area for screening and storage of soils until completion of all excavations.
