From 6/14 through 6/18, the Alamo's preservation team will perform an assessment on the front of the Alamo Church. This work will include a 45-foot boom lift and scaffolding above the Church doors. The Church will remain open and this work should not impact visitor traffic significantly. This work will take one week, and will provide insight into the condition of the Church facade and what needs to be done to repair it.
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.
