On July 26 and 27th, the Alamo will be installing tie-rods along the west exterior wall of the Long Barrack. Pull tests will be conducted, and a Texas Historical Commission representative will be present. This work will not impact visitor traffic, and will be finished by midweek.
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.
